Ok on the 20 th of February I had my wisdom tooth extracted and the doctor suggested to not smoke for a week. I decided to give it a try and play with the idea to completely quit. I started from that same day using the patches and smoking three cigarettes per day. The first week was hell. I kept "playing" hoping that patches would help, but the desire was there constantly as day were passing. So finally I got it and on the 25th of march I completely quit. No patches, to cigarettes, nothing. On day one I almost passed out in a restaurant. Then dizzy and sleepy for the rest of the day and day two. Today I was exhausted the whole day, wandering in a foggy state...awful! Its so hard, but people around think Its not that bad and its me who is super sensitive etc. I try not to lose it and I know its enough that I know how hard it is, but at the same time I feel I get lousy support from the people around me. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and that its nice to be able to talk to others about the quit journey!
I want to add that I am a man 37 years old, I smoked 25 100's a day for 16 years and now that I write this I feel so proud for not having smoke these three days.
