Day 2, doing ok, a bit vague but ok

Hello, Day 2.

Feel pretty good, mouth tastes nice, clothes and hair smell good.

Have got the 'quitters cough' am hacking away.

Couldn't sleep last night.

Feel pretty damn vacant, a bit spaced out, but to be honest it's not that unpleasant and I know from previous quits that it'll pass soon.

Strangely enough am not over eating.....

Feel pretty calm overall. Can't believe I spent money on nrt gum and have not even been close to using it...think I'll try and just stick to cold turkey.

  • Well done, you sound very positive.

    I believe the spaced feeling is due to the increased amount of oxygen in your blood, and as you say passes once your body becomes accustomed to it.

    All the best


  • Welcome Juster, and Hi again Sal,

    I'm only a couple of days ahead of you on my quit. Congrats on getting to day 2. I think celebrating the early steps is hugely important - those first minutes, or couple of hours. The first evening, the first night. So tough to get through, but such a pleasure when you do. So you should both feel really good with yourselves - take it a day at a time, and you'll be into Day 3 before you know it.:)
