Been a pack a day smoker for 6 years now and decided to quit on Saturday. I've done 2 full days already and into the 3rd right now. Reading all your posts is inspiring cos 6 years is nothing compared to what some of you are fighting against... It's definitely getting better today, yesterday was absolutely horrible, I mean I couldn't do anything without thinking of a cigarette... and my whole body felt so tense and cramped up, I kept stammering too when i spoke... it's getting better though, I still can't stop thinking about a cigarette, but I'm just eating a lot more than I used to in order to battle the urge... which I know is not great, but I've started jogging in the evenings as well (if you can call it jogging!, but my stamina's improving by the day)
I know I can handle the physical withdrawal... I just hope the mental addiction goes away soon too... I just graduated from college and one of the reasons why I decided to quit was that I blanked out in my first 2 job interviews half way through because I needed a cigarette... it definitely contributed to me not getting the jobs... I mean I don't see how I can not blank out in a 2 hour interview... Hopefully this blanking out will stop... On another note, for some reason I'm finding it so much easier to wake up after insufficient sleep nowadays, strange huh? Anyone wanna share some of your thoughts about my/your experience with quitting?
