Peeking into Day Three

I can't actually come into Day Three for a little more than two hours, but I wanted to take a peek and see what I'm getting myself into. :)

Right now, I'm in the midst of the strongest craving I've had since I stopped smoking two days ago. It's got me in a half-Nelson and won't let go.

Without going into details, it jumped into my face when I saw something online that concerns a friend of mine and I (not on this forum, btw), which caused a super strong emotional reaction.

I am really upset with the incident, and equally upset that it's become such a trigger for me. I was (emphasis, WAS) this closeto packing it in tonight and buying a pack of smokes, and then starting the quit in another day or two.

But I'm NOT going to do that. I've come too far, in just 2 days, to relapse. Lord, give me strength!

My whole body is shaking, my head is light, and my stomach actually aches. As I said, this is the longest, and the hardest, craving I've had since I quit.

I hope I make it!

  • DGee, I hope you got through the cravings. Sorry no-one answered you in your time of need, it happens sometimes when none of us are online. Stay strong and you will notice a big difference in the intensity of the craves.:D

  • So far, so good, but I'm still doing battle with the evil one. If I could just get to sleep, I'd feel so much better in the morning.

  • Unfortunately sleep deprivation is one of the side effects of quitting, it does settle down and you will have the most vivid dreams ever:eek:. Hang in there're you are doing so well
