My Experience the last 24 Hrs

Through day 1 (thank you so much guys for the support on my day 1) and half way through day 2....was tempted a few times today..or shall I say craved...but got over the a bit snappy a few times....thanks my darling hubby for the help and encouragement...but, please lets stay out of the shops and malls for the next few days, there was a few times I felt like losing control because people where just darn right taking there sweet time which was irritating me to no end. Oh yes, I found that I woke up at 2am, 3am, 4am and again at 5am which is our normal get up time. Is this normal when quitting?

Hi Gail

Congratulations on reaching day 2, if you can go over 24 hours you have proved to yourself you can do it. Sorry to hear you're not sleeping well. I have slept much better since quitting but my hubby's been having a terrible time with sleeping. I think it got easier for him after the first few days. Maybe try and cut out anything that might disturb you like coffee etc but I think it will get easier in a few days.

I can so relate to being grumpy, my OH is so strong with his quit I could kick him at times. He puts up with so much from me but really is my rock, I couldn't have done it without him letting me shout scream and generally verbally seeth out my fears at him (I did cry a child:o)

I think it's a bit like the excorcist, the nicodemon takes you over once in a while and you are not responsible for anything that comes out of your mouth........, well that's my excuse anywaye :rolleyes:

Good luck and stick with it, you have lots of support here!



Well done Gail you are doing great. I suffered with waking on the hour every hour for the first week or so but it will soon pass. Don't know why because I had also cut down on coffee (cigs and a coffee went together for me) so it wasn't that . I guess it's just that your body is working overtime to cope with all the changes that stopping smoking brings, it will pass though. :)
