Just checking in...made it to day 16 with the help of you all. Yesterday was another tough one for me.
I can tell I am much more irritable than I was as a smoker, I feel tired a lot more often or when I'm not tired I'm anxious. Is this part of the process?
I chewed two pieces of nicorette last night....something I was really trying not to do, but gave in anyway. Still have not had a cigarette which I am thrilled about. I'm going to try to hold off on any further gum as I could tell right after the second piece I started getting hot and antcy for more nicotine.........what a horrible drug it is.
I had mentioned that I was waiting on some non-tobacco, non-nicotine cigarettes to come in the mail. They arrived about a week ago and I must say are helpful at times. They are made from the outer shell of the cocoa bean. They taste awful but did help during that second week. I'm trying to hold off on these now too as they make my throat feel terrible.
Keeping my nose to the grindstone...Johnny.
Thank you all for your experiences, it reminds me daily I AM NOT ALONE!!
