Calm after the storm :)

Hello folks just thought id drop by to say that im still smoke free :) even the demons wont let me give in to smoking this time! So the wild acne got worse before it got better, Ive had my womanly week and I think thats reset my hormone levels and evened me put! I feel alot calmer and the spots are going down thank the lord!

I still feel propa tired and sluggish, but I think I will do for another month yet, 3 month mark is normally when the whole withdrawal stage is complete of all its nasties!

Im very happy though. No more demon on my shoulder when i wake up needing a feed, it reallly is pure freedom! Dont get me wrong I still think i would like one but i know this is my head tbh because if I did have one i would 100% regret it half way smoked! so im not going to even bother! Ive also been out for drinks twice now and been fine! oddly the social smokers i once envied were more uncomfortable without fags than i was! how strange is that! I did quitely gloat ha ha!

anyways hope your all doing fab! I wanna post a story later in the that forum so maybe some of younger quitters who are not sure about quitting because of the social implications. Im sure theres a few who read our posts but dont join or bother qutting because 'there only 20 something'. Be nice to encourage more people my age to do this for themselves! xxx

    Congrats on your quit. Keep it going! I too am a 'twenty something' but decided to give up..... given how much I smoked - a lot - it has been a lot easier than expected! I've even survived going out on the piss a few times now, which I was always afraid would be where I would slip up if I quit...

    I hope you manage to feel better soon - I've only given up for 3 weeks but am also experiencing the sluggishness/tiredness. When I wake up in the morning, I honestly feel f*ing terrible; it feels like I'm hungover or something. Do you know how long this will last?

  • Enjoy the calm :)

  • Snazzy jazzy i would say 6 weeks till you feel normalish. Tbh its so gradual you wont notice yoh will just think oh i feel decent now lol i feel great! Nearly 9 weeks quit xx

  • You really have got this nailed this time Nikki.

    It's you in charge from here on in. You can just watch the weeks and months mount up!

    Very well done! It's not easy to quit smoking and you should be really proud of what you've achieved.
