Day 1 experience

Posted in Quit experiences 06 Jan 2015

Although I wasn't going too badly during the day for my first day of being quit, by the evening I was beginning to feel restless so I had a spray of Nicorette mouth spray left over from my last quit attempt.(not exactly going cold turkey but it's better than sticking crap in my mouth)  I've also got a bit of constipation - hope that passes as quickly as it came!  I'm sure this is because the nicotine is leaving my body and I have to be happy with that. I also had a few cravings and urges to smoke throughout the day, but I am determined to stay smoke free and keep remembering how I felt when I made the decision to quit in the first place. I find that keeping busy helps a lot.

Take care everyone :)
