Lily; Cold Turkey, Day Three, Feeling Ok With the Quit Still

Strange as it is, this time around the quit is going very nice, anger is full blown, but cravings are very few... have to watch things carefully at the end of the week though, its the sneaky cravings that became a pain in the butt last time. Still going strong Lily? Be good to have a bud through this! According to some charts I am nicotine free completely by the end of today, which is a good thing. I think I've saved almost enough money for a very violent videogame to help me with this quits anger issue. I know i should be smiling, but thats very hard to do right now... anyone got a good joke? My wife went back to her country, so i'm alone again ... got lucky at work today, as the guy that smokes the most called in sick... woot... not cheering cause he's sick, but thats a bit less smoke i have to avoid today. Supposedly my smell is coming back to normal sometime today too, can't wait! Heres to not smoking today, and never smoking again everyone! Boudee... i'm working on finding you and the others... might be a little bit though. Keep it up everyone, you all are wonderful motivation!

Viking.

    WE NEED YOU BACK XXXXX

  • Congrats for getting back on track Lily... start a moderate exercise routine, and you won't gain any weight with the quit... eat well also, but try not to binge eat if you can help it... lol... i write that, as I'm calling for a pizza... I decided to forget about weight loss this week... as I need a vice... I'm biking to work daily, just eating a bit more then usual... I figure a pound or two is nothing compared to what smoking was doing to me :P Keep it up, and stay with the quit, i'm here for you 100% Lily! Thanx for the kind words everyone.

  • Hi Viking, thought i would just say hello.

    Must anoy you coming on here and finding out half the site (uk) has gone to bed. What is the time diff ?

  • Well, it is 7:20 pm as I write this, and i'm sure it is after midnight there... I guess I have to wait and see when this is posted :P Not annoying at all, because when i do come on, I have tons of stuff to read lol... some weeks i work afternoons, so will be able to come on when you all are in your mid evenings, but regardless, all that matters is we are here, we are not smoking, and we all rule!
