Day 8

avatar-icon

So today is officially day 8 without a smoke, cold turks lol. How do I feel?
Well I don't wake up in the mornings with the yucky mouth taste of doom anymore, lol. My eating has kicked up a notch, but walking everyday has helped. And because I was blessed with eczema it decided to greet me with a full face flare up last week, I guess its my bodys way of trying to deal without nicotine and alcohol after so long of feeding it that. Slowly clearing up now though. Ummm apart from that, getting flu like symptoms and the slight need for a smoke every time I see someone on the telly smoking, Things are starting to look up!
I'm pretty much dozing off quick smart sleeping like a big baby every night which is a huge change for me. I could stay up for hours binge watching my fave programme and chain smoke until my eyes fell out.
I haven't really had a chance to socialize with my nearest and dearest yet who all smoke, I just don't feel ready to be around them all yet. Aaaaaand I'm on annual leave so going back to work on Saturday is going to be interesting as my workmates are all smokers. Not sure how I'm going to be this weekend, so any tips will help greatly :)
I don't even know how these things work lol so I think I shall end it here...also my eyelids are telling me its closing time :)

Quiting

avatar-icon

I just quit cold turkey January 5th and already am diagnosed with anxiety so you can imagine how intense each withdrawal symptoms feel I’m on day 4 n almost all the major symptoms are gone it’s not impossible it just takes commitment to want to quit I still experience really bad anxiety and become very irritable and feel overall weak I smoked fir 2 years and I’m proud that I made the choice to get off and if you are thinking of getting off which I highly suggest you do don’t quit cold turkey use nicotine gum or patches it will take longer but you will feel so much better your lungs will start repairing themselves you’ll feel like you can breath so much better don’t let a chemical control your life there is always help out there and I believe anyone can do it just focus and commit to it! I also suggest if you have it at your disposal legally, take Xanax it really takes the edge off everything and allows you to forget about cigarettes and do you, please also remind yourself on how much you take because that’s not something you want to get addicted to either I’m no doctor but if use it for 2 weeks then cut it off and put up with the rest of the withdrawal if it lasts that long for you best of luck to everyone if it wasn’t for my friends supporting me I don’t think I would’ve been able to quit.

Follow the guidlines to be alive

Hey, Im Snouz... And they always have those warnings on smokes, Its because they are real... Now i know your addicted to cigarettes, But why?. They only shorten your breathing, Break your sleep, Impotent your body, Give you germs and make you super unattractive to health freaks that dont smoke. Believe me your not an addict, Your only in your soul alone and afraid to follow people that think you can be better. So that makes you a prejudice, Which means you dont like being around people better. You are trying to make your own landmark of success but you wont get anywhere?... Trust me, QUIT smoking to feel the evaluation of how they think of us, Believe me... You will see results. (Treat cigarettes like cucumber, Never buy them)

Day 9 - Back onboard

avatar-icon

Well I had my last cigerette at 2:00am on 1st January and I remember looking at it and thinking 'I will beat this'.

This time around I am going cold turkey and have never felt better about myself. But have noticed I am eating like an absolute pig, compared to what I normally eat.

One step at a time.

Kia kaha whanau.
