Congratulations to you too, I am proud of both of us. I feel like you do that I am a non-smoker now. How are you urges? I didn't believe for a moment that they would be less and less but I want to tell everyone that is going thru this that IT IS THE TRUTH so stick with it, in the end we win..
I am so proud of you BWITHT and lets keep it going. (one for each of us)
Nuff3 Thanks, and be proud of yourself your into week three that is a hard milestone but you are doing it. I tell ya this is the best thing I have every done for myself and truly I thought it was going to be so much more painful. Don't get me wrong it is not a cake walk but it is so doable.
Your right,this is the best thing I have done for myself,it has its moments but they pass.
The chantix has helped,but I only take half a pill in the morning and the other half at night.GP won't increase dose ,I quess the chantix can mess with insulin level and sinse I'v been on steroids my levels are high.So during parts of the day I feel I'm doing it Cold Turkey.
But the strong survive.It has been very well worth stopping!!!
Hi Nuff, Just to let you know, I am trying to take a half a blue a day now, so far so good. Don't worry I know people who only took it a week for the nicotine and they are doing fine. It is definitely mind of matter and you sound upbeat to me that is half the battle.
Thanks to you too. I rarely have cravings anymore, at most once per day. I didn't think it would be going this good this soon. Of course, having the Dr. put me on antidepressants due to post-op depression helps greatly.
Tonight to get out of the house for a little while, my DH and I went to the local bar/casino. It was quite smoky in there and only once did I think I would like to have one. Then the thought passed and the longer I sat there the more I was irritated by the smell. The second good thing, went in with $20 and went home with $60. I only gamble 2 or 3 times per year, only play the nickle machines and never spend more than $20, so it was fun to do so well (on both).
I love casinos, only slots, just love the excitment there. Sixty bucks... good for you I told myself I would never become on of those reformed smokers but I am with you on the smell, but for some reason I still like it when someone first lights up then after that forget it.
Thanks Judy, and welcome. Congratulations on your quit.
I have been quit for 2 Months, 2 Weeks, 1 Day, 16 hours, 6 minutes and 3 seconds (76 days). I have saved $486.85 by not smoking 1,533 cigarettes. I have saved 5 Days, 7 hours and 45 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 4/30/2007 12:00 AM.
Sorry for the delay, I have been really busy with my grandson. He just had his 2nd birthday and he and his mom have stayed over the last couple days due to 100 degree weather and only a small window ac in their apt. We have central air. I don't know how I could make it without ac, since I am cooped up in the house most of the time. With all the hustle and bustle I haven't even thought about lighting up!
Tonight my DH came and laid on the bed for a short time while I was watching TV (I don't have to wear the brace if I am laying in bed). I had to cover my nose because he had just smoked and I couldn't stand the smell of his breath. I think he got the hint because he didn't stay long. He is sleeping in the guest room while I am recovering so I don't have to smell smoke breath often.
I work in a branch of law enforcement and one of my co-supervisors gave me the nickname b_tch with t_ts. It is pretty fitting for me! Inmates find me very firm, fair and consistant. Staff (especially male) do not care that I am that way with them also.
Have a good week and I look forward to our next milestone.
PS: I had my last smoke almost exactly the same time as you (about 1 1/2 hour later taking time zones into consideration). We really are quit buddies!
