So I finally decided to quit smoking after about 8 years of smoking. Let me be the first to say this was not as hard as I thought it would be, my whole life revolved around cigarettes, literally everything I did was organized around when I wanted my next cigarette. I was scared to be honest, I thought the withdrawal and cravings would force me to go back to smoking, now I know I am only on day 5 but I will never smoke another cigarette, I have almost no cravings what so ever and my symptoms are so small that I know the worst is almost over. So hopefully my story helps some of you trying to quit!!
I was on my computer and having a cig, all of sudden I was having a hard time catching my breath! I automatically looked at the cig and put it out, I was so sick of this addiction!!!! Everyday waking up and having to smoke, standing out in the freaking cold weather or RAIN to smoke a cig like an idiot!!! I am so sick in tired of smoking its unbelievable, my symptoms were not that bad....Day 1: HUGE CRAVINGS, wanted a cig so bad but no other symptoms....Day 2: Less cravings, small headache, some gas thats it........Day 3: Less cravings again, headache, stomach issues......Day 4: Less cravings again, no headache, stomach hurt.....and today!!! No cravings so far, some stomach problems but they too will pass!!!!! If I do get a craving I smell my ashtray! Let me tell you, if you can smell your ashtray and then smoke.....YUCK!!!!!!
Anyone can quit, I hope everyone trying to quit has the will power to get through it!!!!! I wish you all the best, GOOD LUCK!!!!
