15 days still edgy and anxious

Its been 15 days and still edgy. In fact got into it with my significant other last night, over something ridiculously stupid. I felt the blood rushing and the intense urge to go out and smoke, to get away and blow off the issue. Which would have been my normal reaction. This time I stayed put took deep breaths and resisted the urge. One day, one challenge at a time. So far successful.

  • Hey Schmicter😊

    Way to go for not lighting up and congratulations on 15 days👏👏👏

    Anger and irritability are part of people's quit journey in the beginning. Are you using any NRT. You did good by deep breathing. A quick walk around the block can help out too.

    Keep up the good work and hope your day is a good one👍🏻x

  • (Doing a little dance) ...wow well done cos we all know that feeling... when your blood is boiling and a feeling of hate takes over you... but you bet all that away and come back stronger...amazing good one you...

  • Well done Schmicter on getting through that test, it's hard but you did ever so well. Be proud coz every battle won is a victory👍🏼🚭😊

  • Hi schmicter, certain situations certainly test us in the early stages, my kids thought I was possessed sometimes 😊 you certainly showed nic the door so really well done, keep it going 😄

  • Way to go!!! It's so hard to get through those fighting times and stay on track. I have been asking for five minutes of silence to get myself calmed and rational so I (hopefully) avoid punishing my loved ones for my quit anger! You are doing great!!
