Day 13 now.. hope I get lucky

Can't believe it's day 13, but today wasn't easy... staying @ home the whole day except for grocery shopping with my OH, and she has not been understanding.... or maybe I'm just being a grumpy old man.

I hope we don't blow up today, and just make everything worse than it feels today already. It's already 8pm my time, and I have a ride early tomorrow morning, hopefully I can call it an early evening and go zzz.

I hope the exercise takes the edge off, and I can safely reach 2 weeks.

I simply don't HAVE the patience like I did with my OH, work , people, friends, most things in general. Perhaps its withdrawal, or just learning how to live in this new nicotine-free (hopefully) world.

Am I dreading my weekends now ? :mad::confused:

Have a good one everyone.

  • Don't worry the frustration and quickness of temper don't last too much longer than a couple of weeks though you will have the odd day here and there. All I can say it just ride it out, physically and mentally haha.

    Weekends are the worst because you haven't got stuff filling your time like usual but you'll get used to it after a couple more.

    All the best and I hope I'm not too early in congratulating you on the 2 week mark tomorrow ;)

  • Hi Edged

    Really understand how you feel. There's a great thread called Anger Management by Kaz1. Check that out.

    Remember, that you choosing to stay on your quit can't be reliant on outside things, ie. whether your OH is understanding or not, etc, otherwise you give away your power to choose and become a victim, which isn't true. Sure, I'm not saying those things are easy but watch out for the nicodemon mind desperately looking for excuses.

    You have done PHENOMENALLY well and don't you dare forget that!!!!! All those thousands of little victories have added up to where you can hardly believe you've got to - Day 13. Fantastic.

    You really can do this....

    Hi edge, hang in there. I totally relate to what you are saying. Today has been hard for me too. My other half is being supportive but things are still hard :(

  • Hi Edged

    I hope you are feeling better today, weekends are hard but exercise will help. Well done on getting this far, you should feel pleased with yourself :)
