Yep my husband called them 'The Evils' - didn't harrass me much overall but this description thrown in every now and then has stuck now I'm ONE MONTH FREE ! Am also a first timer in 'posting a thread' so double excitement!
So my story- i did it cold turkey this time - 3rd time lucky I KNOW. Have been on a rollercoaster ride of emotions... my poor hubby still doing very well in coping with my erratic behaviour and sweet emerging tooth which wasn't there before. Anyway am still waiting for this amazing health feeling to kick in! I haven't coughed or got sick or anthing like that.. i just felt slightly 'heartburny' at times so not too bad physically (after the first 5 days anyway) - the cravings were definately there and popcorn helped me through quite a lot?? bizarre but orally pleasing (without too many calories i guess)
After one month i fantasise about having a ciggie(and dream it too) - but the waking thought of actually lighting the stick in my mouth and breathing in the fumes is starting to look like a pretty silly thing to do - am trying to look at other smokers (while holding my breath) and thinking that they are just drug addicts (as was I) - so gaining some strengh from that. The cravings have dropped a little now after a month so please tell me it gets easier and easier as time goes by>>?? This site has been a great help - have been reading all morning so THANKYOU other wonderful quitters - stay strong. Its got to be the best personal decision we've made in a long time huh?
