On my 19th day and i feel good. I am kind of waiting for the 'big test', whatever that might be because i think i've had a pretty easy time of it. I think of smoking less and less often and my resolve is very strong. I know that there will be times where I will feel my confidence slip but I have to be honest, this is MUCH easier than dieting! Maybe that's just me - i've been a yo-yoer all my adult life and am currently at the heavier end. The food demons are a bigger fight to me so I think I'm spending my time either thinking of food, eating food, or wondering how i can stop eating and thinking of food quite so much! Smoking just isn't coming into it!
I feel no major health benefits yet. I think i can take deeper, fuller breaths and i am less breathless up and down the stairs, but otherwise, i am waiting for the waking in the night to pass and am quite concerned about the second head I am growing on my chin! There is also the unpleasant side effect of digestive system disruption that is very uncomfortable.
At nearly 3 weeks, i think i have come a long way to break the habit of smoking, the urges are lessening and I am proud of myself - but no way do i think the fight has been won. It is still a day at a time.
