21 days today and Crabby

I'm pretty excited that I made three weeks! But boy am I a crab! I know I'm being totally awful and yet I can't stop myself.:( I suppose it's not to be unexpected but I had hoped it would get easier rather than harder. Oh I'm exhausted but hey with all the damage I did to my body smoking over the years it takes energy for it to heal its self and it's working overtime to do just that. I love the way my hair smells and boy ladies have you smelled your perfumes lately? I started yoga which really helps relax me before bed so sleeping has gotten easier (and my kids have joined in and are loving it..and it's quiet quality mommy time) I also have been listening to a relaxation app on my phone when things get really tough but nothing is helping with my short fuse. I refuse to ever smoke again but I sure hope my family, friends, coworkers and patients will forgive me when this to passes :rolleyes: Happy quitting everyone and good luck to all.

    Hiya, this is a brilliant post I totally understand what you mean about perfume :) I am a bit of an addict and was constantly spraying when I smoked to mask the smell now it's not as much but lasts ages! :)

    Being crabby is definitely expected I don't know if u have heard of the threes but 3rd day 3rd week and 3rd month are known to be difficult, maybe next week you won't feel so irritable, what is good is your positive attitude that will carry you through this bad patch keep it up! Xx

  • You are doing great :D. Things will continue to settle over the next few weeks I am sure.

    I too love perfume and yep it smells so much better and lasts for ages :D
