What is feeling back to normal?   General Chit-Chat

I find myself telling people that I still don't feel back to normal. Wait, what is feeling normal like as an adult? That's right! I have smoked non-stop since age 15. This is my very first quit, so I don't know what it feels like to not smoke as an adult. Perhaps I am feeling normal and I just don't realize it. I find it incredibly sad that I saturated my mind and body with so many deadly chemicals for 46 years. How could I possibly know what a non-smoking adult should feel like? I do find myself having some extremely immature thoughts. How scary would it be to go back to having an adolescent brain!? It sounds like something from a sci-fi movie! Don't mean to scare anyone off. I'm just voicing some wild thoughts here.

LOL!  Go wild!  

Ohthankgod. YESSS!! THIS EXACTLY!!

Myself, with all the un-numbed emotion coming back, I've been feeling /very/ 17...like my brain just reset to factory defaults. /Not/ my preference.

It's never not going to be worth it, but I have had moments where I wonder.

Looking forward to finding out what normal is though.

Hi mark michelle.  I reckon normal is any day without a paper rolled stick stuck in our mouth with smoke coming out of it.   Happy normal to all of us.

I haven't a clue, but if you find out, let me know !  grin  I think Viv is right, our normal is not smoking right now. Other than that, we are winging it !
