How is everyone today?
I'm good, and I've made it to day four. I am please to report, I had a little better sleep last night and finally dozed off about 1ish, which wasn't too bad. I am hoping my pattern is on the mend as when I return to work 1am isn't good when you have to be up at 5am!
The appetite...well..don't ask!! My body is determined to swap one addiction for another, but its not getting it. I have been reading up on foods that help during the first few days of non smoking and its helped a lot. Its also helped that all the lollipops and boiled sweets I have in a fat free and sugar free, so no guilt there!
I started a healthier eating plan today and intend to combine foods that are meant to work for longer energy levels and avoid blood sugar dips, so today had one poached egg on wholegrain toast with a small glass of orange juice, it seemed a lot of breakfast but apparently its quite healthy and I need to eat so the champix doesn't make me sick.
I know a lot of people say day 3 and 4 have been the worst for them but Day 3 was fine really, and Day 4 seems okay so far too
One thing I did feel yesterday was a realisation that I need to find pleasure and enjoyment in other things as smoking was that for me. And now I don't smoke, I don't drink, I don't touch caffeine and I'm trying to eat more healthy, I feel like I don't have a source of enjoyment so I'm going to take up a little hobby I think, not sure what yet.
Well, sorry for the long post, I seemed to have waffled a bit...but my quit feels good and the willpower is still strong!
Hope everyone on Day 4 has a great day xx
