Day 3 babysteps

I made it to day 3 :D I can't believe it myself :rolleyes: . I blame this forum hahahah. :D

It's not so much the cravings I have to deal with but the constant thought "and now a cigarette" popping in my head.

I had thoughts , do I really want to go through all this again ?...and today I am felling so strong and my answer is 'YES and I will get through it '.

This feeling can change quickly and I know I will struggle , but I enjoy it while it lasts (smiles)

its not u having thoughts of 'do i want to go through this again' thats mr nicotine having those thoughts but your not going along with him

u have fought and beat him in the past and u can for sure do it again u have had the taste of freedom and that is stronger than the addiction in the end

Mood changes are common after quitting

smoking as a result of nicotine withdrawal. They

will be especially pronounced if you have been

using cigarettes to manage your moods and

relieve stress, depression, or anxiety, for

example. After quitting, you may be more

irritable, frustrated, restless, angry, or

despondent than usual. You may also experience

headaches, trouble sleeping, and difficulty in

concentrating. However, these changes usually

get better in 1 or 2 weeks as the toxins are

flushed from your body and you find other,

healthy ways to manage your moods. Let your

friends and family know that you won’t be your

usual self and ask for their understanding.
