Hi folks, im now entering my 4th week. Wow i am amazed. Firstly that iv actually managed to quit and secondly that it has been relatively easy. I know for many it is really difficult so i dont want to sound like im gloating.
Its for 2 weeks before i quit i convinced myself that it was going to be the hardest thing ever, i thought i was going to be an emotional angry mess. Im the opposite
have bundles of energy
more able to deal with crap being thrown my way in a rational manner
my dog is happier(more walks lol)
my kids are proud of me
i smell good
i dont have cravings no more
motivated to work out more
My one regret is i wish id done it sooner but hey ho. During my quit iv had quit a few personal issues going on, worried about my little boy but he's now been given the all clear (phew). My husbands just recovering from 2 major ops which has put a huge strain on my marriage (which is going downhill fast).
But i got through by thinking smoking will not make any of this better. Im using patches and for the first week read paul mckenna book and used this forum aswell as will power. I WILL NEVER SMOKE AGAIN and it feels good to say that:). I enjoyed my cigs but i enjoy my life now more. I wish you all the best in your quits and i am living proof that it can be done
