I don't feel cocky, not yet. I'm only on the morning of Day 3, and I have had two bouts of insomnia the last two nights, so I'm operating on less sleep than I should be getting.
But here's what I'm wondering. There have already been times, during my first three days, when I found myself saying, "You know what? This isn't so bad. This is doable. I can do this."
I wouldn't call that being cocky, but I do wonder if I'm setting myself up to get slammed to the canvas in round 4, or 7, or whatever, because perhaps there's some inevitable major craving up ahead, and the fact that I've been relatively okay with my quit so far means I'll be ill-prepared to deal with it.
Does that make any sense?
And, for the record, I have already had a couple of major cravings that nearly sent me to the convenience store. It hasn't all been pretty. But, that said, it hasn't been horrible either.
Should I be careful about feeling too confident? Or maybe the question is, when can you start to think that your thoughts that you might actually succeed at this are based on reality, and not fantasy?
