Wow cant believe it's nearly two week already (even though some days seemed to last forever!!!)
The really confusing thing is that i dont think i've had any real bad times since my throat stopped being sore and my sleep went back to normal. I have days when i feel rubbish and have no energy but havent really had any cravings for cigs - have times when my body feels like it wants 'something' but its not specific to cigs and normally chocolate will deal with it. Owe my life to chocolate these past few days
hardly drink any liquids at all now (used to drink 3 litres of dilute a day - honest!, cos my throat was so dry from smoking) and have to remind myself to drink something every few hours so i dont get dehydrated.
My OH still smokes so i have to deal with being around other people smoking- although its banned from the house. last time i tried to quit i avoided smoking and all other triggers like the plague but found that as soon as i was forced into a situation where i couldnt avoid being around smokers i gave in and ended up smoking. this time i've made a point of being around smokers - but it's always on my terms i.e i make sure i'm in a strong frame of mind and not stressed out. now whenever i see smoking i make myself think something bad about cigs so hopefully eventually ill associate cigs with bad things automatically.
My brother actually offered me a cig yesterday just after i told him i'd quit - but pulled a disgusted face and sad a big NO THANKYOU. cant understand why some people have to do those things!! but felt smug afterwards.
Normally i have issues with anxiety but since quitting i feel in control and strong - so maybe nicotine was contributing towards my anxiety or maybe it's just my frame of mind.:confused:
Quick question - has anyone else not developed a cough yet - cant decide if thats a good thing or a bad thing?? means all crap still in my lungs. Although i stopped smoking at work bout 2 months ago and just smoked on evening at home and did cough a little when i started that routine.
How did everybody else feel at this stage in their quit????
thanks for been there so i can vent my feelings x x x x x
