Hi all, Having quit in the early afternoon on New Years Day I am now officially on Day 4 of this difficult journey to non smokersville.
My negatives (figured i'd get them in first to end on the positives).
Insomnia, it can literally take hours to get to sleep and then my sleep is broken but it's not causing my to be too tired during the day - the extra oxygen and energy I guess.
Can't stop thinking about smoking, I think this is caused by the fact that I was a very addicted, heavy smoker but I really can't get it out of my head for more than 30 seconds.
I am a little snappy today.
I'm spending more than I am saving on NRT but I am not smoking.
My skin looks brighter and feels better.
My hair also looks and feels better.
My breath, hands and clothes do not smell like a filthy ashtray.
I have more energy, not bundles but noticibly more.
My general outlook on life is more positive even through the low times oddly.
I have so much more time, I do not tear around like a blue backsided fly to get things done so I can smoke. I can take life at a slower pace and still get things done in a timely fashion.
I Do not wish to sound disgusting so bare with me. I am NOT suffering from trapped wind - a good sign my system is functioning sooo much more efficiently as I have not changed my diet at all. Sorry, tried to keep it as polite as possible but it is a good sign sort of.
Best of all is the improvement in my sense of taste. As a smoker I gulped water because I needed to, now I sip water and really enjoy it. Even domestic water is fantastic now especially this time of year, the mains water is a perfect temperature and tastes clensing.
I don't yet feel like a Non Smoker but i'm gonna be. N.O.P.E
Good luck all
