Crying!! :(

Hello, I had never been in this forum before, I am a female my name is Itziar I am 24 years old from MExico City I have been smoking a pack a day ever since I was 15 until yesterday.

I have tried quitting smoking 2 times before, once I managed to do it 2 weeks then another time 1 month using the patch but once i took it off I wanted a cigarette.

Right now it has been 13 hours since my last cigarret I knwo it is not much but it is being very painful, this time I am using no patches no gum and no nothing as an aid, I am doing it alone... I am currently at work and I dont seem to be able to concentrate, I have my own office so i can cry and noone sees me which is what i have been doing I just cry sometimes, not constantly but yes I am feeling depressed it is like the goodbyes to your best-friend even though he truly is a cold blood killer.

I kwno this day is going to be very hard and the days to follow and maybe i am going to cry like a baby and whine and scream but everything is better than dying from smoking, besides I know those tantrums can't last forever.

I have been drinking a lot of water that is the only thing that is shocking and that I dont knwo if it will do my body sooo much well cause i have drinked 2 liters of water already... (the quantity u are supposed to take in a whole day) and it is not even the afternoon yet. I also have felt a little dizzy but like very little and not constantly.

I am avoiding all things that could encourage me to smoke such as coffee.

Well I hope I make it to day 2 safley and with less tears too. :)

  • hiya and welcome.

    cry,scream and shout at us all you want............we have been where you are

    and it does get so much better!

    try drinking cranberry and tomato juice aswell.

    good luck

  • You are doing the right thing by logging on here and posting when you feel like this, it will get easier, although it may not seem like it right now... keep with it and good luck x

  • Thanks a lot for the support, it helps to talk to people who have gone trhough the same cause they understand.

    I'll keep the cranebrrie juice thing in mind I actualy love how it tastes.

    I am also havgint this conversation moments with myself like my mind and me and trying to stay relaxed and just this constant chat that is actually helping , I guess the real trick here is Beating your impulse and instinct with your mind and once your mind rules yourself then I think its safe base.

    I am going to go out of my office to take a walk so I cna relax a little bit and then I'll be back.

    Thank you a lot.

  • Hi Itziar,

    welcome and congratulation on the decision to quit! :) I've had my fair share of crying in those early days, but the grieving is part of the process so it's a necessary pain that trust me is nonetheless going to be over sooner than you expect! be proud of yourself because you really deserve it - hang in there and keep us posted!

  • Thanks Francesca.

    Well now its been a couple of hours since my last post, I am feeling way more relaxed this is odd but I am actualy very calm now very peceful. I mena odd cause usualy u are pulling your hairs hahaha but not this time, I feel really great.

    I havent had the need to eat anything or put something inside my mouth, I am having some green tea and it is veyr relaxing. I feel kinda full from all the water i drinked earlier hahaha so I expect to be eating something very light and healthy for lunch.

    I hope this state of mind that I got in and this peace lasts for the rest of the day, btw the walk really help and chatting with some peopke from work.

  • bless you

    it does get easier darl im on day 10 pretty much doing my cold turkey just hang in there and good luck to you.

  • well done your doing great, keep up the good work, it will get easier as time goes by. :)

  • Stay strong and keep with it

    3 days will feel like time has stopped.

    Time will move very slowly, once you are out of it though the liberation and elation you will feel being free will be better than anything you have ever felt before. You will be free.

    it does not actually take that long. just do NOT smoke!!

    hang in there.

    concentrate on the here and now, get through each second, minute, hour bit by bit - soon you will have all that nicotine crap out of your system.

    I did it, lots of people on this site did it, lots of people i know did it, you CAN DO IT!!

    Be Free.

    You are doing the best thing, and some of the improvements in you health happen quiclky.

    For example by the time you read this post, the oxygen and carbon monoxide levels in your bloodstream should be "normal".
