Day 5 and everything is o.k.
Hardest day by far was day 2. I spent the whole day in a funk scanning the net for horror stories, inspirational texts and quit smoking support in general. It was a very hard day! Surprised me to be honest, as day 1 was a breeze.
Saturday (day 3) was absolutely fine, no problems at all. Day 4 was alright, I craved a bit last night but got through it (I think it was watching the X Factor results that made me want to run out the back door :p). I even visited my Mum yesterday with the family. She sat there chuffing away and I was absolutely fine, I didn't crave or covet her sitting there smoking a fag. In fact I felt....indifferent.
Just to reinforce things I went to church last night and the usual culprits were outside in the cold before service began. I didn't envy them one bit and then half way through one of them had to leave and get a drink due to a coughing fit, then a little while after another started coughing but this sounded meaner and nastier than the first and people started commenting. Unfortunately these people really are dying for a fag, well not me, not anymore.
Made one mistake yesterday and took the Champix in the morning with nothing but a coffee because we were running late and I had this weird sharp stabbing pain that came and went all day in my stomache (properly in my stomache too, on the left side just below my rib cage). Didn't feel sick or anything, just this kind of pain that cycled - stab - gone - stab - gone.....all day. Lesson learned, take it with any food in the cupboard!!
Dreams are a bit of a bother, I'm regularly waking with them and last night I struggled to get back off after all of them (I say all because I reckon I'm waking after or during dreaming about 5 to 6 times a night every night, sometimes it feels like more! Add a bit of insomnia when first trying to get off and all in all last night was my worst. It'll have to be pretty bad to get me off the Champix though, I've never, ever felt so good during a quit.
I'm looking forward to a week+ with no fags as I haven't managed that since I was 18 where I managed 6 months. One week plus will be a real achievement for me.
Roll on the rest of my non-smoking life......and yours
