Day 3

Im on day 3 of not smoking which I feel great about and I already notice a difference in the way I breathe and my energy level...

But....and didnt you just know there was going to be a but? The cravings are tolerable but I feel very moody and irritated :mad: I know some of that is to be expected but I also dont want to be unbearable and cause problems at home and/or at work because im going from zero to bitch in 0.5 seconds :o

Im not sure what anyone can tell me to help but Im open to suggestion and I guess Im using this as an opportunity to vent.

All that being said.....Im very grateful to be smoke free today.

Hi Monalisa :D

Well done on day 3 that's great just hang in there and I'm pleased you can already notice a difference in your health

Feeling moody and irritable is nowmal for most of us quitters the first few days/weeks

I would suggest if you're worried about this that you explain to your family/freinds and workmates that you have quit smoking which is causing the moods and irritability and ask them to bear with you and try to ingore it if you get like this with them. it will help them to understand it

Yep i agree with Marg and you have to be prepared to say sorry :D

I think I have apologised more in the last couple of weeks than I have in the last 2 years!! Make the most of it.........it's probably the one and only time you can get away with being a bitch :D People do understand how difficult it is.

THanks Marg and Carol...

Carol I had to laugh when you said its prob the one and only time I can get away with being a bitch :D I know that this is just part of the process and everyone is aware that Ive stopped smoking and have been very supportive.

Maybe Im the one that needs to get over myself :p

As always thanks so much for the words of encouragement
