Today is my first guit day.

At times I feel like I can do it but at other times I am finding it so hard. I get really angry at times for no reason, is that normal and how long will the cycling between being fine and then angry?

This is hard

Re: Today is my first guit day.

Akazie, First off good luck. Be proud of yourself it is tough to stop. Secondly are you taking anything to help or just cold turkey....... I tried ct but I was miserable so went to the doctors and got some help. Just remember one day at a time.

Re: Today is my first guit day.

Good luck to you akazie. Everything you are going through is normal. Actually, it will take quite awhile to feel "normal" again. I'm at 7 weeks and still can cry easily, feel deprived and get mad, etc. This is a long process we will have to go through I'm afraid.

Of course, it's tough. When I think about how I smoked around 7300 cigarettes per year, for 26 years, of course it's going to be a hard habit to break. I can't expect it to be quick. I just keep praying that each day will get easier. Now, if only we didn't have any stress in our lives!!! LOL

Hang in there and we'll all get through this together, with each other's help.

Re: Today is my first quit day.

Sadly, I have had a smoke but I am going to keep working at it. I am so sick of smoking, I am using the lozenges to give up.

Re: Today is my first quit day.

I wouldn't get upset with myself to much, to me even if you cut way back that is progress. Try not having what you would normally have today. Wish you the best of luck....
