3 weeks in just over 1 day? Yay!! That’s amazing. I think we’ll all look forward to sending some congrats messages that day.
That sucks you aren’t better yet. Hopefully the icky antibiotics do their job soon!
I’m doing better each day and mostly left with exhaustion now. So happy to not be like I was Saturday. Now I’m restless, but don’t have energy to do anything. I’m so sick of watching tv. I watched tv all day Sunday and Monday, lol.
Ice storm sounds bad. I hope you stay safe and your power stays on!
Thanks , you are doing great too !
Yeah , I am one of those people that needs positive visuals. Plus for me it is fun to put the sticker on each day before I go to bed , as in yay I NOPED another day.
Thanks Anne for your support. Still sick and well, quite frankly bored and requiring extra sleep each day.
I am sorry to hear you are still unwell. Here is a sunshine hug to give you a smile.
Anne, you are so awesome. And you make a really good point about the initial withdrawal taking only days, not weeks. That is the typical experience for most ex-smokers and certainly what newcomers to this site need to hear. Nicotine has a short half life and withdrawals only take a couple of days. I need to be mindful of that when I overshare/post about how I struggled for weeks--my experience is not typical and was most likely exacerbated by how my brain is wired (history of alcoholism and addiction, now in remission thank god).
Anyway, hope everyone is having a great week!!!!! Every day I wake up as a non-smoker is a gift. I am finding that I am sleeping better--maybe for the obvious reason I'm not waking up in the middle of the night to smoke. Yahoo!
Thank you Anne, timing is everything and this is my time.
Congrats on 3 weeks!!! I sure hope those antibiotics are starting to work for you. Keep those stickers going. Do you have a reward in mind for your one month? Can you believe that will be coming up so soon??
Quick check in . Because of the ice storm I lost internet yesterday and power this morning. A big limb from my neighbors hit a corner of my house last night. The sound was disturbing and freaked me out . I am stressed. Still slowly recovering from illness. Not suppose to get my power back until 2/28.
I am at my sons charging gizmos. He has power but no internet because of storm. We don’t have unlimited data on the phones so can’t be on here long.
So I am going to throw in a huge NOPE.
Yay , today I am 3 weeks smoke free !
I hope you are doing well Jenny .
WOW!! So happy you’re safe! That’s a really long time to be without power. Yikes! I really hope they get it done faster than planned.
This week started out bad for you and just got worse and worse. Next week will most likely be better, right? Statistically speaking. Hang in there.
