I have reached Day 5 now - not without tricky moments for sure ! It is very true that we can all identify particular associations between the weed and say having a drink or the mid morning cup of coffee - I am trying to face these as I go rather than avoid them on the basis that I wish to stop them triggering a need for a smoke - I have had what I assume to be normal two or three enormous battles with myself - just sitting thinking I am longing for a ciggy - the thought though of having one - probably disliking it - disliking myself and having to start from Day 1 all over again has managed to stop me giving in - the first evening when I had a glass of wine I promise you my hand went out to reach for my packet off the table - well if that doesn't illustrate " the habit " what does ? Also drinking heaps of water - firstly it helps flush out toxins - secondly stops you eating so much - it is clear that we can mistake withdrawal symptoms as hunger pangs - hence lots of people put on a lot of weight and thirdly drinking replaces the " dummy " which was the cigarette. It is the giddy and light headedness which has caught me out and a feeling of fatigue - but hey ho we are withdrawing from a very evil drug - has anybody else any tips or ideas to share - I went for hypnotherapy by the way on the morning of Friday 3rd July at 9.30 a.m. !!! and I am approaching this very much on a day to day basis
