Good Morning Day 5 :)

Tired tired tired but so proud of myself :). Yesterday was tough but I made it :D. Still flu like and sniffling and also seem to have some fluid retention? Looking forward to the weekend.

Thanks Debbie. Finding it tough today :(. Think I've worked out what some of the problem might be. I have drastically reduced my caffeine intake as a result of not smoking. Not intentionally just a knock on effect as I'm avoiding the same routines.

Hey!

Keep at it, the symptoms your suffering have prob got more to do with caffeine withdrawal than nicotine. But if your stuggling to sleep then the caffeine won't help! Lol.

Well that was a useless bit of info for you!

As you can see in stuggling to think today, other than that im good.

Have you still got your cough? I'm worse in the morning or if I wake in the night.

We've almost done a week! :D

Lol Rosey. Yes I'm still coughing away :). Glad you are here to keep me company on day 5 :)

I read somewhere that nicotine suppresses the effects of caffeine, so doing the coffee and fags routine in the morning is playing one against the other.

So you have another coffee to make up for the first fag, but you need a fag to go with the coffee, so that makes coffee No 2 not so effective, so just another quick one before work, then a fag on the way so that you need a coffee when you get there...and so it goes on, all day.

Sorry - burbling like it's Day 2. Which it is.:o

Hahaha explains why I drank a case of diet coke every day along with my 20 cigs. Ok slight exaggeration but it was a lot!

Lindy well done day 5 :) I wonder if that's why I feel so bad aswell, I have not had a cup of tea or can of coke since I stopped (I drank loads of both lol) been drinking green tea with lemon or just plain water.

I think it could be :). I am going to allow a bit more caffiene tomorrow :)

Just boosted my determination by making myself read a list of all the horrible ingredients in Cigarettes. Scary :eek:
