It's been 2 weeks and 1 day since I touched a cigarette. I'm eating wayyyy more-- my weight is yoyo-ing more than ever-- and my skin tingles all over (idk if thats from smoking or if something else is going on). Aside from that I feel good!

Another attempt after so many restarts. I have been on this vicious roller coaster ride. I get to a couple of weeks feeling good and think I’ll just have one which of course turns into a packet. has been my quit for the last year no wonder I’ve been feeling exhausted and just so defeated. Need to get this done once and for all. I just want to feel better and happy. Need to stop
Today is the start of the rest of my smoke free life
