Boom! Almost 3 weeks. Going to go out for a burger tonight to celebrate. Feels good.
Coffee Tastes Awful Now
It's been two weeks and today I realised that coffee tastes awful now. It used to be my absolute favourite thing.
The previous times I've tried to quit I assumed it was the nicotine lozenges that made coffee taste bad but I haven't had them in days and it still tastes gross. I'm considering switching to herbal tea.
Has anyone else had this experience?
8 Days in
It's been 8 days. I already feel better. I'm a bit grumpy and tired but things are going pretty good in general.
Yesterday was the first day since I quit that I was able to enjoy myself. I had some friends over to draw pictures and drink tea.
I know I still have many things to do without smoking. Today I'm going to the park to read a book in the sun. The usual thing I used to do was to have a cigarette when I got there and then have smoke breaks in between chapters. It's things like that that are going to be a challenge.
I've decided not to go to the festival that's on today that my friend invited me to. He smokes and I'm not ready to hang out in a high-risk, outdoor, social situation.
This is my first post.
I quit this time yesterday. So far the not smoking has been easy. I've been using the lozenges and I've been meditating using an app on my phone.
Went and had a coffee at my favourite coffee place this morning. I usually smoke there but this time I had my coffee without smoking and took my diary out to write down all the reasons I want to be smoke-free.
I went to the market and got heaps of beautiful vegetables with the money I would have spent on cigarettes.
I know it's going to get hard, especially when I'm stressed, but I feel like I've never been in a better position to quit.
