Day 17

Good Morning all! I wanted to post on Monday as that was my two week mark but just mentally couldn't. I AM GRUMPY!!!! I seriously hate the world right now but I'm not smoking. The pregnancy has me getting sick regularly on the hour every hour. I'm hungry, tired, and irritable. I seriously looked at someone the other day who had an unusual smile and thought wow I hate that person! I think this is hilarious because obviously I'm not being mean to people and I know why I'm feeling like this. My co-workers keep cracking up at me with my comments so it is all good spirits. BUT....I AM STILL SMOKE FREE! It's like smoking isn't even an option anymore so when I want one I get mad for a second and think oh yeah I quit ugh...then I get over it. I cannot wait for November 30th because that will be 1 month and also my first baby doctor appointment! When I quit I kept thinking if I quit now, November 30th will already have been 1 month and it will be easier. I have heard a lot that after two weeks it gets easier. The last two days have been pretty rough but like I said, the pregnancy symptoms have increased dramatically so that probably has a lot to do with it also.

How is everyone else doing? There hasn't been many posts lately...I keep checking back to hear how everyone is doing as it helps with my journey also!

Alynn...You are doing extremely well...Hang on in there...!!

My wife quit smoking during her pregnancy....we have three beautiful sons....they are almost 8 years apart...from the first morning sickness till 1 hour after birth she did not smoke, in between she smoked again till she suffered a serious heart attack 9 years ago and since then she stopped completely..never smoked again...!

Yes, she was GRUMPY.... but I blaimed it on the pregnacy...!

Moral of the story...use your pregnacy to hide the quitting grumpiness.. all the luck and stay strong !!

Good evening Alynnk0821 Your post made me laugh. I distinctly remember detesting some people too, for very little reason, in the early days. The most important thing is you're still smoke free. Let others deal with the grumpiness and you can get on with your quit. You're doing great.

I had a very minor operation, under local anaesthetic today. It wasn't much but I'm a total wimp so I was quite nervous about it. Once it was all over I emerged from the hospital and I felt I could have killed for a cigarette. I didn't have one of course...and it would have made me feel ill anyway...but the thought was still there, and it took a while to shake it off. Always be on your guard!

Oh Nozmo, wishing you a full and speedy recovery and glad you got over that craving, reminded me of when hubby had his surgery last year, could have killed for smoke too being around the hospital as hate them, have been there several times since then and never happened again :).

PS Desperate hammering for us last night, gutted, started off so well and started thinking and planning our summer holidays next year would be to go to some of the games in Russia :'( :(

It's nothing really, just had to get a lump taken off my leg. Nothing bad. I have to keep the dressing in place for 48hrs but it keeps falling off so I'm wearing one of my wife's stockings (with the foot cut off) over the dressing. It's perfect for keeping the dressing in place but I fear you may use this as further evidence of transvestism :-)

We have three Danish students at work and they were all over the moon this morning. I would have liked to see you get there, sorry you didn't.

I hope you recover quickly! I don't really have anything coming up that would make me want to smoke...actually the complete opposite so that is good news for me. When I drop my kids off in the morning it hits me for a second but I just get mad then get over it. Hang in there you have come so far!

Thanks Alynnk0821 !

It's a good thing that you don't have anything coming up you associate with smoking...makes it a whole lot easier.

"BUT....I AM STILL SMOKE FREE!" - Why the 'but' Alynnk0821??? Congratulations, 17 days is great especially dealing with stopping withdrawals along with the pregnancy sickness.

They say it takes 21 days to break a habit and everyone wishes for the big milestone of 1 month, I know I did, time does pass much quicker after reaching it and it gets easier to deal with the cravings but we must be on our guard at all times for the out of the blue nasty cravings.

Keep up the good work and look forward to reading your progress :)
