tooting my own horn, loudly.
I’ve quit like 12 times since you quit. Congrats.
Dude, I started quitting over a year ago. I got down to 4-5 smokes a day for a year and then decided to quit. I used the patch and I also take anxiety medicine, which I’m pretty sure is making it seem easier than it really is. It’s not easy all the time. I still crave them. I still go sit outside after dinner. I still after go outside at friends’ houses to keep the normality of that escape. I guess the best and only advice I can give is that you really, really have to want to quit. Don’t be too hard on yourself. It takes time to readjust. Good luck!
No smoking! (Taken with instagram)
Send me your support! It’s been a rough ride, but I still feel stronger than ever!
Nice! Every time I see these posts I totally celebrate for you! When my best friend hit 100 days smoke-free I sent him a celebratory package and I’d love to do the same for you if you’re comfortable giving a mailing address to a total stranger!
I’m totally a nonsmoker. Day 49. I got this. (Taken with instagram)
I really cannot believe it. I still can’t say I’m a non-smoker. I still say I’m quitting or I quit. Many challenges to come in the next month. Road trips. Social gatherings. Holidays (read as: FAMILY).
I can do it. I want to do it. I will do it.
My mom smoked a pack a day for 20 years before struggling to finally quit. She looks better at 50 than she did at 40! I’ve seen firsthand how hard it is, but I’ve seen even more how much it’s worth it. You can definitely make it!
I know! I think the drive to quit came when I had to write down at the doctor’s office that I’ve been smoking for over half of my life. That is absurd, and I do not want that life anymore.
Thanks for being so supportive! I’m sure I’ll keep posting about it, as this battle has just begun!
Awesome awesome awesome!
Thanks for all of the support. Today marks 3 weeks and I feel very positive. It definitely helps to have support from friends, family, and my tumblr followers. I really appreciate it!
It still feels like I’m playing a sick joke on myself. I’m just gonna be like, naw girl, just playin’, go outside and smoke. Go enjoy that cigarette. You deserve it because you’ve gone 20 days without one.
Sometimes, after I finish a task that I would normally smoke after, I say it out loud,”Alright, I’m gonna go smoke a cigarette now”. I don’t, but saying it just feels so natural. I haven’t picked up all the lighters around the house. I’m planning to put a lighter next to each candle in the house, so that they have a purpose.
I’m smoking less and less hash, so that’s a plus, or not. I guess it depends on how you look at it. I don’t necessarily need to smoke it to replace the habit of smoking cigarettes, but for some reason, the cravings were easier to handle while I was high.
I only have 3 patches left. I’m not wearing one today. I’ve been going without one every other day for the last week. One day, I had a stressful day at work and put one on before I was tempted to go out with the girls. It worked.
I feel ready to be off all nicotine; I just hope my brain feels the same way.
Day 15 was my first night out without smoking. I quickly noticed everyone with a cigarette. They still smelled good. Luckily, I was able sneak off and partake in some festivities (green). I didn’t smoke cigarettes! High Fives! Now, I just need to figure out how to not need herb when I’m in those situations.
Also, totally failed on Paleo. I expected to at the Seafood Festival, but then we ended up at Whataburger. This happened:
Thanks, FourSquare, for reminding me exactly how long it had been since I ate fast food!
My tiny paleo body is paying for it today. Time for eggs, bacon, and black coffee!
No more loose tobacco in my gum packaging or carmex.
we joked about going to see this at the movies on friday; also relevant because
IT’S DAY 9 WITHOUT CIGARETTES!!
instead we watched horrible bosses, with dinner and drinks, for $30.
i’m on day 4 of not smoking. i just started my last box of step 3 patches. yes, i smoked while wearing the first set of patches, but usually just one a day. the cravings aren’t as bad as i expected, except when any of the above situations come into play, add driving. i’ve spent 15 years of my life smoking. i’ve identified myself as a smoker for just as long. now, all of a sudden, i’m not a smoker. it’s odd. i chose a very stressful time in my life to quit smoking, and i think that will help me in the long run. it’s empowering to know that if i can make it through this difficult time without my favorite vice, i can make it through anything without them.
SMOKE MORE WEED.
Oh, and Mike has to tell me how proud he is of me and give me a high five, EVERY DAMN DAY.
