    Three Weeks Smoke-Free

    So, today marks three weeks being smoke-free for me.

    For some unknown reason, I yawned a lot yesterday. I t just kept happening. It felt good to be able to take a very deep breath and not wheeze.

    This morning when I went downstairs to get my coffee, I yawned and now I'm a little short of breath, like when I start to have an asthma attack. Dunno what's up with that, but it bothers me a little.

    Anyway.......three weeks of no cigarettes for me. While I don't have the intense cravings any longer -- and haven't since around day four -- I still get snappish when I feel that "void" of not having a cigarette. I hope that feeling passes soon. I hate that feeling.

    Hey Bullwinkle...

    Way to go, girlfriend. That is so great. Oh, it's so wonderful not to wheeze any longer, isn't it? About that yawning...I have read that people do that when the body is needing more oxygen...so you yawn to draw in more? Hmmm...makes sense, I guess? About that feeling a little short of breath, I don't know why that would happen...but I swear I've seen that come up on this board [more than a few times] before,... people saying that some breathing issues started up shortly after they quit smoking. So weird. Sometimes I think it could be a little bit of anxiety, after people quit they do get some anxiety, and that can cause a breathless feeling. Well, let's hope it's just a passing thing...it probably is. Are you going to start some exercise along with your quitting program, or are you already doing that? It's so helpful for better breathing!

    That snappishness..LOL...I had that for quite a while after I quit. If you asked my husband, he would tell you. He said he hated it but didn't care, as long as I quit,..whatever it took. Funny, when he quit, (7 months before me) he never got moody or snappy...I wonder why it just seems (to me) as if men just get through quitting smoking with less problems than we females. (maybe because their hormones aren't going wild?) I read that men have an easier time quitting than women do, and that we relapse more often. Anyway, let me shut up...I'm getting off track here. LOL

    Have a great day Bullwinkle, and congrats to you....next week a month, girl!!
