Yep, I'm still focusing on my journey! I am intimately familiar with "Day 3" as I have seen many "Day 3's", however this "Day 3" I have something I had not had before,... That is the sincere WANT to quit. I think my struggle is not as intense as previous quits.
I'm doing as I expected: irritable, jittery and anxious. Oh, need to mention, somewhat miserable... I'm afraid there's no "easy button" (not for most of us anyway). I had my first cigarette as a rebellious 13 year old so after smoking for 50 years, I guess it's to be expected.
I do feel fine in between feeling irritable, jittery, anxious and miserable. In fact, I do believe I am feeling better today than yesterday.
I think my last attempts were half hearted attempts, kind of waiting for the day I "want" to cave, holding off the "cave" moment for as long as I could. I think those attempts I had it in my head I was not going to succeed (or possibly did not want to succeed?) but this time, I have a different attitude. I WILL SUCCEED!!
I don't want to get too ahead of myself seeing this is only day 3 (and it's not completely over yet), but I think I have a different mindset this time.
I don't want to wish my life away, but I am looking forward to having more days under my belt.
Best wishes to all that are starting on their personal journey. Hang in there!
