My news

Okay. Where do I start???????? I got home yesterday from Laughlin. I know, wrong place to go so early in my quit. But, not smoking wasn't going to stop me from living my life. It is my choice not to smoke. Well, when we arrived there, I was scared. When I got to my room, I got very scared. I thought, how do I unpack without a smoke? Well, I did. I unpacked, without a smoke. Okay, now down to play 21!!! Sat at a table. I saw no one smoking at it! It wasnt so bad. I could do it. Uh oh........ now I'm surrounded by smokers. 1 to my left, 3 to my right...... Oh no......... Whats this??? I start coughing!!! The smokers look at me and say I'm sorry..... I tell them I'm okay, and then I leave that table. Needless to say, thats how the whole weekend went. I didn't even crave a smoke!! It was like I had never smoked. I didn't even think about smoking. I am so proud beyond belief. I started my quit because my hubby wanted to quit. I thought I'd make it easier on him. When we quit, I was counting down the minutes that he would give in, so that I could. I posted on here, and someone responded "that they had done the similar, but had grown into their quit." Well, I definately have grown into my quit. I know I will never smoke. One question though................ This quit has been easy for me. Why? My initial intention was not to quit, but I got through it. My cravings were not that bad. I got through it. Now, 22 days into my quit, and I have no cravings. Not a one. I do not dream about smoking. I do not glamourize my time when I used to smoke. I do not feel I am missing anything. I dont even think about smoking, or for that, not smoking. I do think, however, that the Nicodemon will come and slap me right in the face to say "So, you think this is easy, well take this!!!!!" I do wait for the big test. I know it will come. Someday. I am just proud of myself. I have life. :) [B]My Milage:[/B] [B]My Quit Date: [/B] 3/5/2006 [B]Smoke-Free Days:[/B] 22 [B]Cigarettes Not Smoked:[/B] 679 [B]Amount Saved:[/B] $71.94 [B]Life Gained:[/B] [B]Days:[/B] 1 [B]Hrs:[/B] 19 [B]Mins:[/B] 44 [B]Seconds:[/B] 12

I'm feelin weird!!!

Welcome Moonchild! I too expierenced exactly what you are going through. I still go through "episodes" of this now. All of a sudden, I am completly spaced out, shakey, and dizzy. As far as my sinus problems, I haven't had them clear up yet, but I know they will. I think my allergies are not letting go. All will clear up. My body is getting used to all this oxygen! Let these side effects be a blessing -- it is your body healing. Keep strong! :) [B]My Milage:[/B] [B]My Quit Date: [/B] 3/5/2006 [B]Smoke-Free Days:[/B] 22 [B]Cigarettes Not Smoked:[/B] 674 [B]Amount Saved:[/B] $71.94 [B]Life Gained:[/B] [B]Days:[/B] 1 [B]Hrs:[/B] 19 [B]Mins:[/B] 24 [B]Seconds:[/B] 57

Tomorrow....a new me!

Welcome Commit2me! It sure sounds like you are on the right track! I am a cold-turkey quitter! It is rough those first 3 days. I was shakey, tired, hungry and spaced out! (I'm still a bit spacey, but hey, I think its growing on me) It felt like I had a craving that lasted all day. However, I came here. I looked at old posts, read and read some more. It truely helps. So does water!!! Keep your supply up. You will need them for a long time to come! I do remember the day before my quit date. I think I smoked 1 pack of cigs in 3 hours! Oh boy, that is gross.............. I decided on about the 6th day that this is what I wanted. I do not miss anything to do with smoking. Before that time, I did feel like I had lost something. I now know what that was. I miss it NO MORE!!! I have accepted that I will never smoke again. I will keep fighting to not smoke........ You can do it! You are already on your way. Congrats on your life changing decision! Please post often. We would love to be by your side on your journey!

This is so hard!!!

Hello! From what I have heard, those people who have quit for years, simply just light one up for no apparant reason. There was no craving, just plain old curiosity. All it takes is one puff to bring back those memories. I know the craves go away. A cig should never be something we wonder about 3 years from now. "Well let me see what it is like to smoke just one now, after all this time." That is a deadly thought. Good luck & stay strong. You are doing great!!!

The last one - new life

Good morning Parola! Glad to see you made the decision to quit! I know it will be hard, no not hard, more like unbearable, for a few days, but hang in there..... it gets better. Post here a lot. And read old posts. It passes time, as well as helps out emotionally. You sound determined. That is good. Just dont fool yourself. Making yourself "forget" your quit will throw you off always. It is the habit of smoking that is making you forget. It is very difficult to break, but it sure is possible, and very rewarding! [quote] How can you act on the basis of willpower - when you do not have it yet? [/quote] Think about this for a minute. You already made the decision to quit. That is willpower. Search within yourself. You will find it. Believe in yourself, stay strong, and just dont smoke.Very simple, but not easy. Come here, and we will walk with you on your journey. Take one crave at a time. Dont look beyond that for now.

Is there a light at the end of this tunnel?

Hey there guys! The only thing I know is, when you think about the crave, it lasts longer. I too had these all day craves in the beginning. But what I didnt realize is that I when the crave came on, I never stopped thinking about it. I said, "when will this end... I want a cig sooooo bad..... Oh how can I get through this... etc....................." I never thought about anything else but how hard it was. I think that is how come it lasted so long. It went to "normal", lasting only a few minutes when I decided to change my thinking. When the crave hit, I took it for what it was -- healing. I didnt think about the smoking part. I told myself I was healing. Then it passed, and I quickly changed my thoughts. Try this. I'm sure once you stop thinking of how bad you want to smoke, you'll start to feel better. Stay strong! Dont cheat -- your only cheating yourself.
