Wow time sure does fly by fast!
Looking forward to that 1 month and beyond!
Wasn't a bad weekend, had a few drinks and was surrounded my smokers, to be honest I was on the brink of grabbing a cig off a few people, but my drunk self managed to stay strong and just walk away haha!
After that night I have been getting the cravings again, maybe from all the second hand smoke?
But this time in it for the long run, ain't falling off the horse again!
Bless to all who read this, and remember if you just quit today, don't give up!

Don't blog everyday, but glad to say I've stayed smoke free and don't have any cravings.
I see there are a few new people who have started their quit journey, my advice to you is, don't give up. Once you get past that first week, the journey only gets easier.
I was on the nicotine gum for the first week personally, but while taking it, my blood pressure would fall and I'd get a dizzy feeling. Since stopping the gum though non of that has happened, I just replaced it with standard gum and think to myself it's the nicotine gum, great placebo haha!
Anyways good luck to all!
Have a blessed day!

Wow been 2 weeks and 1 day :)
Can say I'm happy with myself.
I've actually stopped taking nicotine gum due to it giving me dizzy spells through out the day.
Had the odd craving but nothing that makes me want to go buy a pack. Going strong! Bring on that 1 month!

Coming up to that 2 week mark!
Feeling great today. It's as if I've been reborn.
Went for a 20min run on the treadmill last night and wasn't puffed at all! But after I coughed up all the gunk stuck in my lungs and felt rejuvenated! Onwards and upwards!

Oh man this money sure adds up quick!
Onto my 8th day..
Hey guys didn't post anything yesterday.
But 8 days without the smokes!
Yesterday was really rough, went out to the cinemas with my brother to watch the Logan movie, was happy as because we were waiting all week to go.
So the movie starts and 15minutes in, I start getting really uncomfortable, my heart starts racing and I didn't feel good at all. Went outside for a breather and felt a bit better, came back into the cinema and it just got worse, i actually thought I was having a heart attack..,
Fast forward an hour later and I'm in the emergency room, and they are telling me I'm having a panic attack, doctors checked my heart and lungs and everything was healthy..
but wow, I have never experienced that in my whole life.
Searched up on google and it looks like there are people who have had similar symptoms while coming off the smokes, but seriously that was such a bad experience.

Almost at the 1 week mark, feeling proud!
Went back to the gym last night after 2 weeks of not going and felt great!
Haven't even had the urge to smoke at all!
Day 5 off the smokes..
Not feeling too bad today, kind of get a weird feeling in my lungs when I breathe deep at times, don't know if it's normal or not? Kind of worried.. looking it up on google it says it's a common symptom when you stop, anyone experience anything similar?
Don't even have cravings, each time I think about it I get a sick feeling!
Day 4.. no smoke, no poison!
Haven't even thought about a smoke, i have started to call it poison, because each time I say it, the thought of it makes me cringe,
I can feel the difference already, waking up in the mornings not rushing out to smoke, can breathe more comfortably.
I am getting the odd dizziness, but I don't know if it's from the nicotine gum or not having a cig.. anyone else experience this?
Have a blessed day to all who read this!
