Day......7

Today is good. I woke for the first time without an urge to smoke. I took too many sleep aids last night because I couldn't sleep and miday I was outside and sweated my patch off. So I was having a bad day. But about an hour ago I got a strong urge so I started a load of laundry and organized my clothes. It didnt pass so I cleaned up a little. Still didnt pass so I did dishes. Still didnt pass. So I had a popcicle and hopped on here and it kinda passed. I thought urges and cravings are short lived? Mine lasted at least an hour or so. I hope that was the wrost one for the day :-/

    On the positive side you got lots of chores done!! The cravings do get less frequent as you get further down the line. They also don't tend to last long for me now.

    Hang in there, you are doing brilliantly!

  • I'm on day 4 of cold turkey myself, I sware I felt like I had a 6 hour craving :/ I've only recently calmed after it, merely buckled but here we are at the other side of them!

  • Having a moment but it isn't that bad. I wish I could go to the gym right now but they're closed. I do notice my craving and urge but I have to say it isn't as bad. Earlier was a bad one. I couldn't believe how long it lasted and I'm using the patch. I'm dreading the day I quit the patches. I don't plan on using them past the 2 week supply. They are quite expensive and my insurance doesn't cover the clear ones just the big ugly colored ones.

    I was pretty much cold turkey the 3rd day and that was a day from hell. I felt bad for my kids and had to force myself to stay in my room because of my mood and I just felt horrible.

    I just can't wait for this to be over with. Like I said I'm having a moment and want one right now. Luckily there's no one around to give me one :-)
