Sleeping; anyone else had serious trouble sleeping a solid sleep when first giving up? I’m restless, wake up multiple times through out the night with the serious drys and I wake up foul.. itching for a cig. However once I put my patch on my mood definately improves. Could be placebo knowing I have that safety net and knowing I’m getting nicotine. But I couldn’t be more thank ful for it. Yet to resort to the gum.
Thanks for the tips for the weekend; I have to head home to see the parents and work for them however everyone smokes at home! Thinking about taking a vape just in case I have a weak moment! But I feel I am strong enough to tackle it!
Hope everyone has a had a wonderful smokefree day and happy August everyone!
Aaaah the second day has been and gone; this time with assistance of a patch. Who could’ve thought that a patch of tape could make life so much more bearable. I had a terrible sleep with dreams of cigarettes and waking up with a urge to light one up, but we all have to remember WHY we are quitting. We all have our reasons and they are ALL valid. A lot more positive and thankful for the nicotine patches! Remembering my why and staying focused
I really like reading people’s blog it gives me motivation and inspiration to really want to stop. For some reason this is really helping me reading people’s stories, and how far everyone has come. I will be so happy to pass a week smoke free. Good luck to myself.;
So today I got my first patches at first it was itchy but after like an hour I got used to it. I can actually say I’m feeling great I don’t have the craving to smoke but I can admit for a moment there I did miss the satisfaction of puffing on something. Eventually got over that. I normally have a smoke after I finish work, but today I don’t even feel like it. Feeling so great and positive atm.
My prescription arrived on Thursday, so I filled the script on Friday, my tobacco was getting low - so instead of starting the patches Monday, I started yesterday. So far so good, keeping busy and drinking water when I have the urge to smoke.
Day Four and my first entry. All is going well, using patches and they work great. Had a couple of times where I felt anger but I didn't feel like a smoke. Instead just sat there and let the anger be felt, just watched it and it soon released its grip and faded.
My husband and son will be home today as they travel away for work. They both smoke. Great.......not.
Wish me luck for the weekend, they leave Monday. I'm DEFINITELY gonna be calling quitline for backup this weekend. Cheers everybody 😊
I had been 60 days smoke free, and then last night I was drinking at a party but it wasn't till I got home, that I lit up, the first couple of puffs were amazing and then I wanted to vomit.
So is it back to day one ?
