Good Morning Day 4

Day 4 is here... my mind is still playing tricks on me!

I'm not dying from the urges or anything--- I really think this is because I already know what to expect- for many people quitting is like walking into the unknown.

Its funny, my girlfriend is quitting with me and she is going literally INSANE! I watched her flip out for a good 2 hours last night. I kept telling her to go eat a big bowl of pineapple that I just cut up or go have some blueberries- she decided on sushi and amazingly that killed her urge to smoke.

Back to me.... So I wake up this morning and I am moving around and making coffee and I start to play through my day a bit and I'm thinking "I'll make my coffee, go to the computer, have a smoke, visit some websites" and then I stopped and thought to myself "really? a smoke?" and just kinda shook my head as I was a little surprised that I was still throwing cigarettes into my day. The mind really does play tricks on you when trying to quit.

In any event, this is day 4. I feel a lot better today in regards to breathing. I can take very deep breathes, my lungs feel like they are really clearing out. I am coughing up some very nasty crap but that is expected and should continue for a few months depending on how much crap I have in my lungs still.

Thats all I have for now, will drop by later if anything crazy happens.

Well done :D

The tricks are very odd, I still get them now and often say "I'll just have a cigarette and then do........" and then I think no I won't!

This is tough, I'm having some really strong urges right now. Feeling extremely stressed out.

Haha this is great.. I just wrote a whole paragraph and realized half way through that I wasn't craving anymore. I deleted the paragraph as it was full of nonsense and anger over the craving.

Thanks forum for getting me through another!
