Hey there Wuffie,
Good to see you. Congratulations on
It's great to see that you are still trying to reach your permanent freedom. Never give up!
Hey Brenda yeah I think it might be the quitters flu. I also considered the fact that it’s fall allergy season and I usually get some little symptoms during this time. I took some Zyrtec just to be sure. I did leave work today and cuddled with my little one. She’s four months old. I also have a four-year-old who was at pre-K today. I just finished reading her a story and now I’m laying in bed. Thank God for another day smoke-free.
I'm sure things will look very, very different in 363.25 days. ;) Not quite 45 hours into nicotine withdrawal, it looks...unproductive. I've worked about 3 hours (freelance) in the last two days.
Think there's /anyone/ else on here who's dropping the nicotine before the smoking?
No foolin', I'm half convinced y'all will kick me off or at least ridicule me if you know I haven't actually quit smoking. Dangit, though, if I'm gonna feel like this, I'm gonna count it.
So I'm 44.75 hours free. Here goes nothin'.
Back again for another try at quitting, there is one huge major advantage in this quit over all others, my partner has quit also after a hospital scare/visit on Tuesday night so we are dueling banjos so to speak. No cigarettes in the house, no easy temptations lurking around the corner. I want to wish all quitters the utmost in success, remembering patience in the process, this is not an event.
One day, 6 hours, 7 minutes and 50 seconds. 26 cigarettes not smoked, saving $28.92. Life saved: 2 hours, 10 minutes.
Day 3. The best part of this journey is that I already feel I have more self-respect.
Hi September Ex-Smokers,
We say on this forum that an educated quit is a successful quit for good reason. The more you know about nicotine addiction and the process of quitting smoking the better your chance of beating the addiction and making this quit your forever quit.
Keep reading and posting.
I did that. I used the vape for a while. Got allergic to the juice. Switched to VG juice - found out that’s not good for baby. Switched to no nicotine juice - made me itchy. Finally gave up everything. Now I’m free. You got this! xoxo - whatever it takes!
