Had my last cigarette at 11.00pm on Sunday night so I've come directly to the day 2 forum.
This is my third go at quitting. Previously I've tried Hypnosis and patches. This time I've gone with Zyban which certainly made the ciggies taste disgusting enough to make me cut down and so I then thought I might as well give up fully. I wasn't enjoying the taste like I used to.
It's now been 2 days with no form of nicoteen. The longest I've been without nicoteen for 18 years! :eek:
This time certainly feels different to the other times I've tried to give up. I used to be a heavy weed smoker until last November when I just decided to knock it on the head and haven't smoked a joint since although I have ended up smoking more cigarettes to compensate.
I know if I have the will power to stop smoking weed I can have the will power to stop smoking cigarettes. I do feel as though this time my decision with the ciggies is as strong as my decision was nearly a year ago with joints. I think am slowly coming to terms with the fact that I'm not going to smoke again. That's a hard fact to deal with, but I am dealing with it unlike previous attempts.
I'm feeling quite dizzy at times, a little bit irritable, had an awful night's sleep last night and often have to remind myself I don't smoke anymore when my mind tells me it's smoke time. I'm hoping by the end of the week things will start getting easier and this non-smoking life I'm now living will become more natural.
I've got a real test coming tomorrow as I'm going to a wedding and lots of my friends will be there drinking and smoking. I'm sure I'll be strong enough not to smoke. I'll just tell myself that I really don't want to go through this withdrawal again and while I may enjoy a ciggy, it'll only prolong the pain.
Anyway thanks for reading...if you did...and if you didn't...doesn't matter as I think I writing this made me feel better anyway as it's good to get the feelings out.
Bye for now
