I am sorry if this is longish. I just can't stop moving so much. Clack clack clack on the keyboard...
I had a laugh over at another thread someone said how the biscuits they used to like eating now taste awful.
It made me laugh because something I ate (can't remember what it was) did that to me, too. I thought, 'Eew yuck - I actually liked eating that?'
Maybe it was ice cream of all things.
And whiskey is yucky. I got the first alchohol time out of the system without smoking. But, I went to bed early so not to have any thoughts on the 'evil weed.' I wondered what it would be like to be inebriated without smoking. It was a bit wierd. But having a clean feeling body on waking was neat.
Isn't it amazing having decent breath? Feeling confident to be right up close to people? It's cool.
Back to food, some things I didn't like, especially spinach and veges, I now relish and scoff. Actually I relish and scoff everything. Too much so that I am getting heavy. My wife is shocked. I'm a slight guy but went from 68kgs two-three weeks ago to 74kgs today. But, I am always hungry. It may be psychological (the thing whereby you must have your hands busy) but I also think I am very hungry for energy.
I chew gum and chew one or two broken off nicorette pieces a day. But they taste yuck. Good thing - nicottine[sp] is pretty disgusting.
Anyway, I am finding it's like back into my youth again - what with all the energy and the sense of smell. Smelling stuff now excites me. Movement and early rising excites me.
I haven't got my full sense of smell back I think, maybe 50% or so - anyone know if how the smell sense works?
Anyway - I really, really hope I can do this. I need to as my chosen job next year is much preferable to be smokefree (secondary school teacher,) also I can buy a vintage Gibson guitar as wife gave me permission if I remain unchained to the habit ... and that's 3000 dollars in just a year!
I am so happy all of you others are giving it your best.
I stay right away from others smoking. I think that may be an important factor especially about remission ....
Sorry again for long post.http://forum.nosmokingday.org.uk/images/icons/icon11.gifhttp://forum.nosmokingday.org.uk/images/icons/icon8.gifhttp://forum.nosmokingday.org.uk/images/icons/icon7.gif = all the mood swings ....
