So I tried to quit smoking yesterday and lasted all of a few hours. I was totally unprepared for the attack of cravings and gave in just to get myself through the day.
Today I've been doing much better. Had my last cigarette at 10.30pm last night, it's now almost 8pm again and so far, I'm smoke free. It's been tough, but I think I can handle this for a while.
What I do wonder though is, will it get worse before it gets better? Am I likely to feel the effects of nicotine withdrawal on days 2,3,4 and so on even worse than I did today? If so, when does it get better? When will I start to feel normal again?
I'm trying to just keep it in the day, but it helps to know what to expect in the days to come so I can prepare for it.
