Staying strong

Posted in Hints and tips 18 Feb 2013

Going Cold Turkey, its the 5th day, without any puffs, the stress alone is too much, tell me about it. but my willpower is letting me stay smoke free. i was about to break last night, but then i drank peppermint tea, it actually calm my system down, and i slept like a baby. the actuall challenge is at the work, where all the stress can overtake and people like me will break, but i guess that is where the willpower comes along and get you out of the cravings. The NRT program is the best in australia, but its not for everyone, certainly its not for me. its the usual effects, sore throat, hiccups and what not. so i am using normal gum, its working so far, lets see what happens next.

    Good luck with today! Day 3, 5 and 7 were my worst days so far. I am only on day 10, but going strong. I also found work harder than the weekend. They actually say that it is easier to deal with a crisis if you don't smoke than if you do. Something to do with the calm chemicals. Read my other posting about the Crap in tobacco to keep you off the smokes today. Good Luck!!
