So, today is Day 1. I am off work today - I think that is probably a good thing with regards to my not smoking decision. For those of you who would like a bit of background to my smoking habit, see link:
So last night I smoked my last and broke up the cig's left in the box.
When I woke up this morning I felt relief that I did not have to smoke. However as the morning proceeded, I found myself automatically thinking of having to have a ciggy, and then I had to remind myself that I was off them. Strange. Anyone get that feeling too?
So I have been getting cravings but they they do not seem to last long so far. I am giving myself little pet talks (reminding myself of the advantages of not smoking, how its just the little nicotine monster sitting on my shoulder whispering no goods into my ear and to just ignore him).
I only just remembered that I have patches to put on.
So I am going to go about my day.
I can see that this is going to be some work. Smoking seems to be built into my subconscious.
But i feel relief too. Bring on getting rid of the evil addiction - i will fight it!!
Thanks all for reading….
