34 hours in and...no cig yet!
I wondered if I'd feel different this morning, but to be honest nothing too drastic. I'm getting a tad concerned now, because I reckon it'll all hit me when I'm least prepared!
Like some other's on the site I have my safety blanket. Total 'denial' won't work for me. It had to be a conscious choice not to smoke as opposed to having the choice removed - dunno if that makes any sense...
I usually have a coupla cigs (roll-ups) on my drive into work in the morning, but like yesterday I just stuck some chewing gum in my mouth instead. I did this last night, on my way home from work and on my way out in the evening - it seems to help, just 'doing' something else. Thankfully I had a busy evening so I didnt have the opportunity to really 'miss' having a cig...However, not such a busy evening planned tonight, so this could be the test. Also, I am getting a bit fed-up with chewing gum!
Unfortunately the busy evening equated into a lateish night, and I'd meant to wash my hair (but was too tired/lazy, couldn't be arsed!). I wish I had, because when I got in the shower this morning I could smell the remnants of my last day of smoking in my hair - ewww!!! :eek:
Another thing, I have a bit of a penchant for pineapple...for the first time yesterday evening I could actually smell the sweet, pineapple scent from the empty fruit carton I'd yet to pop in the bin.
Last thing - sorry going for a bit of a War & Peace here - sleeping. I was relieved to find I slept ok, eventually...After reading some posts about disturbed sleep I was really worried - I have gone CT as opposed to fessing up to the docs or anything and consequently don't have any 'quitting' aids - I found it really difficult to actually fall asleep...I seemed to lay awake for ages (then started thinking, if I fall asleep now I'll have 5 hours before I have to get up, then 4.5, then 4, etc...) Before I 'quit' I would've gotten up and had a cig, but last night I thankfully must've drifted off before that thought fully manifested...
Anyway, thanks for all the support yesterday and sorry for the lengthy post - may I be excused and have it chalked up to a side-effect of my withdrawal?
