Day 21 and I think I have turned a corner!

Hi All,

It's day 21 and I really do feel so much better! The anger, anxiety, fear and twitching have gone! I feel human at last....so my point to anyone who is on less days than me is....the evil emotions DO subside and all you are left with is a proud non smoking person.

I love my softer,and much clearer skin by the way.....people have been asking me all week what I have different to myself and all I tell them is that I have stopped destroying myself with Malborough Menthol!

Lots of love to you all......just keep going.

  • Thanks guys. I know it sounds wierd but I was going through my drawer at work totay and found an old lighter. I looked at it, my mind processed what it was used for and then without a second thought I threw it away! Definitely progress.

    Thanks for your support.

  • Clarebear,

    Just thought i'd quote your day 16 post to further demonstrate how much better you are feeling now..

    So....day 16 and all isn't well. i had my first proper craving for a cigarette last night and boy was I in a s**t mood!

    Emotional symptoms experienced so far:

    1. Anger - I have to stop driving sometimes because I am close to murdering other drivers.

    2. Frustration - Sometimes I feel my head will implode.

    3. Fear - Afraid of never smoking agin...WHAT WILL I DO!!!!!!

    4. Loneliness - I have lost a friend that was with me through thick and thin.

    5. Resentment - I hate all the smokers I see who are having a fag outside my office - how come they get to have one and I don't???

    6. Depression - Feeling very lost and down....wondering whether I will ever be able to have a life without any of these awful syptoms.

    Physical Syptoms so far:

    1. Cannot sit still.

    2. Cannot concentrate.

    3. Crying

    4. Eating more chocolate - although exercising alot more.

    Anyway, I have just watched the 1 hour Allen Carr DVD and have learned more about the nicotine trap.....so interesting and all that was explained was very true.

    I'm so glad I am a non smoker and I am so glad I have just started day 16.

    As you can see Clare, in just 5 days you have experienced a dramatic upturn in how you feel.

    Great eh!

  • Hi Clare :D

    21 days = 3 weeks well done you have every right to be proud of yourself

    It's great to hear that you feel so much better as well

    Love and a Hug

  • Great news Clarebear. Day 21 was my day of finally feeling like a normal-ish person again. It's hard to believe the DEMONIC POSSESSIONS do go, but they do. At Day 21 I definately stopped fidgetting, playing with my hair (all the boys must have thought I fancied them on reflection), and generally acting like a complete weirdo.
