I quit around July 20th-ish.
And the biggest thing with me to get through is my health getting back on track.
After I quit, I promptly got sick about a week after the quit date.
Strep C. Nasty.
But I'm over it, and I'm over smoking!
But every morning, I wake up and I feel like I smoked a PACK the night before! My chest feels tight and congested, but I don't cough much. It's just an uncomfortable feeling.
And my voice is hoarse like a croak! Again, I feel like I have a cigarette hangover in the mornings.
I mean, I've slipped alot this first month. I've smoked maybe....7 cigarettes since I quit. But shit....I haven't bought a pack in like 5 weeks...I'm not smoking daily....Those cigarettes were on my birthday and drinking nights.
So I'm doing good. And when I did smoke them, it felt totally yucky. Like, I got NO enjoyment out of it.
I've done a really good job of mentally training myself to NOT like cigarettes. I almost have an aversion to them, I've tricked myself so well.
But it's all for the better. And my boyfriend quit with me too!
I'm so proud of us!
