Day 35

Hey folks,

since my last couple of threads were kinda negative, to put it mildly, I decided to create this one while I am in a good mood :D

Feeling pretty good lately and it feels like the second month is easier to handle. My insomnia is gone and I sleep great, even better than before ;)

I try to keep active with walking and gym, so hopefully I won't gain much weight. I mostly get craves when I am under stress, which is not strange, right...But they are pretty easy to shoo off ;)

Stay strong folks!

  • Hi Kacmins

    Well done on day 35, our quits were similar time and I had the same lack of sleep. You are right though, month two seems easier. :)

  • So glad to hear that at day 35 you are over the insomnia. That, and the anger have been the hardest part of my quit, so maybe I only have a few days to go... oh for some sleep.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Well done Kacmins and lovely to hear from you. :)

    Like Max and the others have said, your posts were never negative. It has been said many a time that talking about the bad days is every bit as important as talking about the good days- the forum is all about sharing our experiences whether pants or bonza ones. ;)

    Good on you for holding on in there despite the difficult times. You're doing really, really well :D

  • @Jenny, not sleeping is definitely one of the worth side effects of quitting, at least for me. I need my sleep! Glad to hear you had a breaktrough at the beginning of the 2nd month too.

    @Max, thanks Max :) Will do, I just feel like a whiner lately, that's all. But I DO read a lot of posts here when I feel down.

    @Nicky, yes it seems like we quit around the same time. I quit exactly 4 days after you :) Good to hear you are going strong too!

    @Kaz, it definitely seems like the insomnia will last forever. But it went away much, much more quickly than I thought. And I am generally prone to insomnia! So be sure you'll feel better soon. The only thing that I tried a couple of times (and had a bit of relief) were herbal teas for better sleep. Maybe give it a go, if you haven't already.

    @TG, I guess the worst is over, but there will be a lot of triggers and first time situations without fags to face, so I'll keep my guard up :)

    @Skiddaw, thank you, I still feel my posts were negative though, despite the fact that they were honest :D

    Also, I DIDN'T smoke 1,054 cigarettes :o and saved $158.10 :)

  • Kacmins .... wow smokes are cheap where you are. In Aust they are about $22 per packet, so in my 31 days I haven't smoked 773 cigarettes and have saved $486.49.

  • Sorry only just seen this, how proud you must be to be continuing with your quit, and yes it is a roller coaster if emotions, especially in the early few weeks, so please post, does not matter, if good or bad, just as long as you ride it out,

    Doing so very very well, just keep going my friend:)

    They definitely are. The brand I used to smoke was only $2.50, and it was Lucky Strike, so it's not among cheaper ones either. And my country has the most smokers per capita in the world. And we are 2nd on another bad list - highest rate of lung cancer.

    Don't apologize, I get so much support here, it's not even funny :) I still feel I need to get more time under my belt to confidently GIVE support, though. Thanks for the tips, I plan on keeping it like this :)
