I am having a hard time believing I am beginning week 2.....and yet there is another part of me that feels like I am cheating by using the gum. I know it might sound rediculous....but I can't help it. Knowing that my body is still addicted to the nicotine is annoying me!
On the way home from book club tonight was the first time I felt like...wow I would really love to sit in the garage....drink a beer and enjoy a smoke. Yes it passed in about 1 minutes.....and 1 peice of nico gum! It still was a pretty strong urge...the strongest I have had since I quit.
I have been good about not replacing the habit with food but I know there will still be some weight gain.....just from the metabolism regulating itself. Other than exercise does anyone have any suggestions to help keep this at bay? I go to the gym regularly so I am doing what I can there. I eat pretty decent....but I had lost 24 pounds over the last year and I admit I am worried about gaining.
Day 8 7th quit
