I Got This!

Posted in Quit experiences 17 Jan 2018

I have been smoke free for 15 days. I have tried multiple times. My longest achievement was 4 months. It's terrible to say my weight and being angry over something is why I started back up. That being said, I've decided to slowly quit certain things. I try to do it all at once and I'm worried I will fail. I am smoke free so that means more $, I don't stink, my boyfriend will actually kiss me and I can breathe! Eventually here I have to avoid alcohol for awhile. It's too tempting to want that cigarette. By the end of this week I will hit the gym. Has anyone else wanted to just sleep? I get home and I want to go right to bed. I haven't any idea why. Am I depressed am I trying not to think about smoking? One great thing is how happy my son is to see that I am not smoking and NOT freezing having to go outside.

    Hi there :-) if u Google the symptoms of quitting smoking, one of them is fatigue.. so u will get quite tired more than usual in the first few weeks so it's all good :-)

    Yes.. Nicotine is a stimulant, so your body is having to adjust to not having it.. Also, what bothered me the most, was what I called my starter. For so many years, a smoke started my day. A smoke started most every thing I did.. Fortunately, I am semi retired.. I was a zombie for several weeks. When I was not napping, I was trying to get something done, and had to learn to do something, without that smoke first. DUH.. Crazy, the things we did, just to satisfy a stupid habit/addiction..
    Stick with it.. It feels so good to be free :)
