I'm still here, I haven't abandoned ship LOL.
Evening folks (it is almost midnight here on Friday) It has been a crazy busy week for me & I apologize that this is the first time I have had a chance to pop in. I see there are lots of new stories & can not wait to read them.
An update from me...I am still struggling to fully launch. I have switched to an electronic cigarette with 14 mg of nicotine. It seems high to me, but I absolutely hate the d*** thing so it is in fact cutting down on my intake. Alot actually & that made me think of what someone said about doing it the way that works best for me. As much as I would love to do it cold turkey, I have learned that it does not work for me at this point in time.
So for now the plan is to keep smoking the awful e-cig. I hate the thing so much. It is nothing like a real cigarette. Time for a bit of analyses on that point. If I hate smoking (the way I believe I DO) then why do I hate the electronic so much? Because part of my nicotine addicted brain believes I am depriving myself. The logical part of my brain knows this isn't true, but I keep getting pulled back into the same mental arguments. What to do, what to do?
Oh, one more thing...I have been exhausted this week. I am still getting my usual amount of sleep but find myself falling asleep all through the day. It is quite bothersome. The whole "time distortion" thing with quitting (cutting back for me) already makes the day seem so long, but the exhaustion on top of it makes it so difficult. Has anyone else experienced this? I Never did with other quits so it's unusual for me. Thanks in advanced for all comments. It is the weekend so I will have a bit more time to check in.
