So I'm on 16 days without a fag now, it feels good to have come this far and generally I don't seem to crave much for a smoke that much any more.
Problem I'm having is over the last week or so I've just felt like rubbish. The weird thing was at the end of the first week I felt great, my skin had a real glow to it and I went out for a social drink with smokers for a whole day and night and didn't think at any point 'I want one'. The next couple of days I felt and looked fine and then suddenly I just started to feel out of energy (exercise I've been doing to help with the quitting is suddenly harder) and I look awful. I've got this strange metallic taste in my mouth most of the time as well, which I'm hoping is just all the nasty stuff from smoking leaving my body.
It's not like I am tempted to go back to smoking because I know in my head a cigarette will never help me with anything....I've just been caught off guard a bit after the great first week and then rubbish 2nd and 3rd week I guess
