Ohhh yeah, and Wanda is still living and staying safe. lol
I quit 16 days ago today after smoking for about 37 years. Some of you have asked how I'm doing on quitting smoking and sorry that I haven't got back to answering it. I get caught up in other things and time seems to slip by. So getting it done now. Only one problem to quitting smoking for me, I didn’t want to quit and part of me still don’t want to quit, but, I will not pay the prices of cigarettes today.
I’ve never the whole time I've smoked ever tried to quit and pretty much know by not wanting to quit, there is no way I can do it cold turkey so I’m using the Nicoderm patches. And reading a website called QUITNET. A great site with a lot of help. The website is a program through my insurance company to help people quit smoking along with other addictions that some people have. Plus I have someone that calls me from time to time to see how I'm doing or answer any questions that may come up, and I'm also able to call the person if I hit a hard place and need help getting through it. But so far all is good. Maybe to good! Not one craving for a smoke in 16 days but I have had a few times that I just wanted one. Specially after a meal. Which tells me it was/is only a habit each time. And when I do want one, I grab a lifesaver candy.
Sure, there's been some up and down times where I just feel like crap. I'm sure there's more times to come. Times when I don't want anyone near me or mess with me, but they don't last to very long. I've starting yesterday and so far today feeling ok as I did before I quit. Hoping I stay like this the rest of the way. The want for a smoke seems to be getting less now. That is until I get worked up or feel pushed about something.
So all is going real good and like I said, maybe going to good. Can't help but wonder what and when is something going to break loose from hell and hit me hard because it's going all to smooth.
Anyway, taking it day by day, sometimes minute by minute and waiting until I am totally smoke free. :-)
