Hello everybody! I am new here, 28, female... Beginning of day 4 for me too! Not easy! I smoked for 12 years, never tried to quit before, but now that I have 2 weeks all for myself I decided to do something productive for me! Because quiting smoking is all about yourself and doing something for yourself!! Isn't?!
It's amazing... wow... in only 3 days my body and my mind went to so many changes!! It is like a journey, for real!! Craves, anger:mad:, obsesion, tears, "quiting" quiting smoking, blaming everybody else, sweating, exhaustion, even shaking to some degree, sleep so well, then not sleep at all, feeling so weird in general, like I am not my own self...!:confused: But then... the feeling of accomplishment after I past each crave, the smell (that's a journey it self as well), the taste, worm feet! And let's face it, these are about all the benefits for now!! And craves AGAIN!!:eek: But it will only get better!! And better! After all it's only day 4!!
Quiting smoking is smart! It's a life experience! It will make us stronger, more patient, we'll feel, taste, smell, experience the world again without nicotine this time! It's like a new beginning that we am offering to ourselfs, if we are strong enough for just a few minutes a day, every day! And we will always have the advantage of knowing and understanding the "before" and "after"! Smoking was just a phase in my life, I had ENOUGH!, time to moove on! Quiting is even trendy!:cool:
All these thoughts help me go on! I thought I should share!
I've been awake for 2 hours, no smoking! That's all it matters for now, right?!
Let's keep it strong!
