Congratulations, Mark. You are doing great !
Nice work! You seem determined to succeed, that’s wonderful!
This is very good to read, because 7 weeks in, I’m noticing my stomach feels upset sometimes. It usually feels better with some tums, but I’ve been wondering what was up.
Not everyone complains about this but even before I quit I had a stomach ulcer and constantly had to take acid reducing medications. This weird ache finally went away after a year so don't despair as it will all go away. Congratulations on 7 weeks!! You've got some very tough weeks ahead so stay stubborn, determined and committed to get cigarettes out of your life for good. I was on here reading all the quit stories and journals of other long term quitters so I got a thorough idea how others felt as the months went by. Stick close to the forum and pledge NOPE every day and be proud of the monumental achievement this truly is.

Congrats, is this your first time trying to quit?
1st time I didn't give up in a day.
Congratulations on two weeks smoke free! That’s a wonderful achievement, as the beginning is the hardest. Congrats on staying strong at the casino too. Keep taking it day by day. You’re doing great. Hope you’ve had a great weekend and that you treated yourself to something special. Hope you have a good weekend ahead too. Keep posting and I’ll see you around the forum.
Some time in the spa, felt great.
Also thank you for the inspiration and encouragement posts.
Im right along with you i just made 2 weeks Friday, i have been trying to quit since i relapsed in April.. I make it a week at most then have one then quit again, so i got tired of it, I feel real bad for people that mess with it and have one, cause it just sucks you back in, real happy i got my motorcycle and car sorted out.
I try to keep busy and get out of the house, i have been taking epic walks to say the least... If i stay in my apartment i get depressed, i know its the cigs making me feel this way.
Have you been feeling tired? I can t drink more than 2 cups of coffee anymore..
Yeah a lot of walks. For me it's not so much I crave a smoke, it's I guess anxiety. My chest tightens, and all the deep breath sighs. I can focus, breath, relax and make it go away, but they just keep coming. Sometimes several an hour. Still haven't given up morning coffee probably should see if it helps.
