So, this is my fifth day of cold turkey quitting. In five days i've eaten like a polar bear, slept like a koala, had a fight with my girlfriend, but i haven't touched a single bloody cigarette.
Today i've actually felt good from time to time. For a few moments i didn't even think about cigarettes! Tomorrow i'm going to go to the gym, to see if my body is reacting better to those weights.
Cold turkey, in my opinion, is the only good way of quitting.
First time i quit was with patches. I lasted a week, and the second i took off my last patch i asked for a cigarette. Second time i quit was with gums.
It was my fifth day without cigarettes, and i had to take only two gums. But the second i started drinking with my friend i started smoking again.
Cold turkey is working better. Getting nicotine, in one form or another, just delays the inevitable and spreads the withdrawal symptoms.
Three days of hell, that's what you get with cold turkey. But i think that this time things are going to work.
See you tomorrow
caner, I agree cold turkey is the only way, 1 month for me now but still fighting the battle every day, nicotine may be out of your body in three days but your brain still craves it for a long time, for me its getting more and more manageable as time goes on but its still a b*****d. Like you started weight training have got a bit obsessed with it lost two stone find it helps me through difficult times. Best of luck, stay strong and focused and it's definitely achievable but it's not an easy ride.
