I have never attempted to quit before and so far I have gone 42 hours without a smoke completely cold turkey. I am quite proud of myself but I am finding it harder and harder to distract myself. In the past hour and a half I have vaccumed, cleaned kitchen and dining room, weeded the garden completely, using a shovel for most of it, done twenty minutes on the treadmill absolutely pounding away and sweating profusely and I have lost count of how many glasses of water I have chugged down and I am still fidgety and struggling to keep the cravings at bay. The one thing that is keeping me from lighting up is telling myself that I can have a smoke whenever I want one and for some reason that makes this a little easier.
I just looked out the window at someone walking past my house having a smoke and wow, the urge to race out there and follow him for a little bit of passive smoking was quite intense. It makes me laugh to imagine doing that; the poor man would have been so freaked out! hahaha.
