Im on day 7 and during these quit days it seems like my mind and body is disconnected. I can't use the right vocabulary in a sentence. I feel like I have an IQ of a monkey. :confused: My thoughts are cloudy. As the quit days progress, I feel like I'm aging backward mentally and physically. I can't really explain this feeling in words but only through my vibe.
My conclusion: All these years of smoking chemicals in cigarettes, it became our bridge through are daily thoughts, actions, emotions, etc. Metaphorically speaking, visualize this: cars need a bridge to get across the other side. When that bridge is cut off, they can't get to the other side. Just like cigarettes (bridge); when it is cut off our thoughts, emotions, and state of being are not bridging like it was when we were smoking. During this quitting phase, we feel vague and mind boggling. Our body and mind is building a new bridge for us. A better one. When that bridge is complete, you become a new and better person and probably don't need cigarettes in your life. Hope this makes sense.
Quit days: 7
money saved: $20
state of emotion: Mind boggling, unfocused, lack of concentration
Physical aspect: sore throat
My motivation to quit is writing down what I want to buy with the money I save up from cigarettes. Feels better that you earned it. My goal is to reach $300 so I can get a new mountain bike. I want to start biking on trails.
