3 months today. Feeling good. When I think back over my quit it has been some journey. The early stages when there was a strong physical need for a cigarette. Then the feeling of total exhaustion and listlessness, where every minute seemed to last an hour, it was impossible to concentrate or do anything at work and all I wanted to do was sleep. Then the emotional side, being grumpy, needy, thin-skinned and generally an ass. Right now I am feeling pretty good. The up-sides definitely outweigh the downsides. Not smelling like an ashtray; not waking up with a foul taste in your mouth; not having a persistent tickly cough; not having to sneak off all of the time. All of those early symptoms seem to have gone or at least reduced to a level where I don't seem to notice them. I am feeling a real sense of achievement as well and since I have managed to sort out my sleep patterns, a real sense of energy. I am wary of the "Blahs" but really do feel in a good place at the moment. Used the new golf clubs that I bought with my savings for the first time yesterday as well. RoisinO1 bring on that badge I need something sparkly and shiny!
