Approaching 6 weeks

So like a lot of people on here I quit smoking at the start of this global pandemic. I figured if I was to stand a chance then I had to quit smoking. I started experiencing anxiety at the thought of being hospitalised and not being there for my children, so after nearly 30 years of smoking, I stopped. Just like that. Completely cold Turkey, and I haven't had one cigarette since. It's been tough, the scratchy throat and headaches at the beginning made my anxiety worse as I thought I had the virus. And after nearly 6 weeks I'm still experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Finding websites like these has really helped my anxiety levels and given me the willpower to keep going. Most days are fine, but some really get to me and make me really just want to light one up. The differences in my body are immense. I can smell..like everything! My skin is much brighter and I look younger (I'm 43) I can walk up 3 flights of stairs with bags of shopping and not have to stop halfway. Quitting smoking is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Because now I have more chance of being around for my kids and even my grandkids. Life is too short and we have to look after ourselves as much as we can so we can get as much out of this life as possible. So for anyone swithering, just keep going, take one day at a time and really congratulate yourself every day for how well you have done not to smoke that day.

    Welcome Patrickprincess It is great you have found this sight so positive, we are all here for you. It seems you have identified the positives in quitting which is so valuable to keep in our minds during this time. I learned to re cap at least one positive thing that happened or I felt good about during my day before I went to sleep, this was so helpful to me in keeping that positive approach alive and well.

    You will find the withdrawals will ease more as time goes on, your positive long term approach for your wellbeing, is paramount, you might include a daily practice of saying or thinking NOPE (not one puff ever) or similar Mantra, which will keep your resolve in place.

    Good work and congratulations on being 6 weeks smoke free. Come back again anytime.
