Happy to be on my third day and appreciating the fact that I have not been poisoning myself physically and mentally during that time. For the most part I gave myself a hard time for smoking. I had been doing it a long time and it was getting worse and worse each year. As I hated it more I smoked more. As I worried more I smoked more.
Anyway, I have noticed a few early benefits and wanted to list these as I go through the quit process.
1. The skin on the back of my hands are already in so much better condition. The skin is very soft rather than the usual leather texture from constantly smoking in the car with the window down and the sharp cool air ripping at my hardened skin. Sometimes I have little cuts at my knuckles. Today my skin feels lovely.
2. At different times I have noticed smells I usually wouldn't. Such as the smell of conditioner on my running top as I was running. Nice.
3. Delighted to not be out the back door humiliating myself smoking in the rain as the neighbours see me from their kitchen window. I hated that.
