So glad I made the decision to quit, the sleep pattern hasn't quite got back to normal but i'd rather that than puffing on cancer sticks! Coughing up 15 years of crap now, better out than in as nana would say! Had a few moments of craving but it passed so fast, i think it was all the prep info and help from quitline and you guys that made it so much easier...totally grateful xoxox hope all your journeys are going well!!!

Yay for kicking cigs right up the bum!
FINALLY a day that wasn't a stressful one! No cravings, no desire for a cig and no feeling ill anymore!! I know that it can come back sometimes but i'm so lapping it up today and just hoping it stays like this! It was so nice to not be consumed by anything to do with smoking today and i'm glad i had a taste of smokefree NORMALITY cos its pretty kick ass!! :D
I hope all of you get to have a day like that soon that havent already, its the boost i needed to keep on it!
66 hours smokefree
So i havent been sleeping very well at all and today has been particularly stressful on top of that and at one point i thought i had steam literally coming from my ears lol but i've still managed to not run to the shop for smokes. Went and bought a few packs of normal gum instead and just focusing on the better feelings i've had the last few days of not smoking, like BREATHING properly and SMELLING things stronger and knowing i dont stink somthing chronic when my kids hug me. Still hard but being here to read the blogs is so helpful, getting good ideas off others and knowing you all are going thru the same thing and supporting each other is beyond awesome :D
Feeling better than i thought and finding the physical cravings arent as bad as the mental habitual ones, i didnt realise how automatic it was to smoke, and until i decided not to i didnt realise how much i actually thought about it too! It's quite consuming and a few times ive thought to just go buy a pack so i can have one but i just keep remembering the reasons for giving up, my health and my children, i'm all they have and with my heart condition and operation coming up i need to be as healthy as possible for it. i know that this part wont go on forever and pretty soon it'll be a non issue, i'm grateful for quitline support system because it truley helps. a few times when i've felt like giving in i happen to get a txt, its very helpful. nothing beats the prayer thou, knowing i have the strength thru god to get thru this is amazing.
