September 2019 Ex-Smokers   Quit Buddies Unite

Started 1/28/19 by Terry (abquitsmking); 84778 views.

It's normal for all quitters to get overly emotional and overthink everything when that doubt we can do this thinking takes over. This is a very emotional process. Many of us get super weepy, grumpy, temperamental one minute and losing it very quickly in the first months. Don't underestimate this drug addiction as it is powerfully strong. But, you have this forum as the extra tool to help you through. Just keep reading through all the threads so you get an idea of how the quits of others proceeded. This is a slow long journey with many ups and downs but stay stubborn, determined and committed to ending your drug addiction once and for all. Freedom feels awesome and we all hope you reach it too.

I am sick.  I have a cough, my throat is scratchy, and I'm tired as hell.  I'm trying to stay positive, but this is hard.  Two little ones have me "on" all the time - no rest for the weary.  I'm thinking about taking a sick day...

How are you doing today, Michaela ?  What great insight and so true. Yesterday we both achieved complete victory.   I am proud of us  !   Today is a new day and as long as we don't smoke, we win again. Trying real hard to stay in the day, not look in the past and not worry about the future.  Today I am good.

Hi Alex,   Sorry to hear you are sick.  Maybe quitter's flu ?  Maybe take the day and coddle yourself and the little ones.  Not sure of their ages. Maybe a day off in front of the TV with blankets and ice cream ?

Thank you guys so much. Turns out it was just a misunderstanding and I now have in writing that my apartments won't tow my car yayyy. It's just stressful to not know when your car might disappear and triggered the junkie thinking entirely. I'm so glad I didn't cave and by tomorrow I can say I'M 1 WEEK FREE!
