Ok, so Ive been a smoker since I was 18 ( I used to be the anti smoker and break my friends cigarettes )...but alas growing up in Dubai where every single person smokes, I fell victim to it.
Anyways, fast fowrward, im hooked and ACTUALLY enjoy it but my body is dying and I can feel it so finally decided to quit. Never really tried to quit before in my life until September of this year (tried chantix and it worked but then my willpower sucked).
Now Im pretty serious about it and just threw my pack on Dec 1 . I was fed up. I must say its easier than I thought doing the whole cold turkey thing.
Here I am on Day 5 sitting at my job (which is hella boring ...I work in research and read about stocks all day) ...I dont have any stress Im just bored and today the effing cravings are just a LOT! wow like i would love 1 cig but I know I wont have it.
The thing is I get bored and when Im bored I smoke but now I dont know what to do at work ...its pretty boring not to get up ..sure I could focus more but who wants to do that. I just dont know what to do with mysefl at work or after...im bored and the craving is getting strong today...aahhhh. I wont smoke and I know the craving wears off but its getting stronger for me.haha! weird I know. When do they really subside and become a 5-10 min thing.
Help anyone ? especially with the boredom thing ? Im SO much calmer and stress free and feel good coz i havent smoked...im not going crazy or anything strangely but today is a bit weird...cravings are lasting like an hour!!!!
Also, I am ALLWAYSSSSSSSSSSSSS SLEEPY . yeesh!
And I would love to go home and smoke weed but then that is a trigger for me so I wont do that now ...not an issue controlling my weed habit (its not addictive)
