Woke up this morning so glad for the chance to start a new day! Yesterday was a day filled with emotion... alot of it not good. My husband made me really mad! And wham!! There came the thoughts "I WANT TO SMOKE". That made me even more angry. I had to do alot of positive self talk to get through... NOPE, HALT, NADO. And acknowledging that while these feelings are probably exaggerated by withdrawal, they are still valid! Pretty difficult when your husband is supposed to be your first support person, to feel like I don't want to be near him.
For today... the huge feelings have passed and I am left with the self respect gained by sticking to this quit! Looking back I also realize that I didn't drink enough water, didn't take time to eat well or often. I only know what I know.... I'm going to try to keep learning about how this affects me, and be prepared.
Thanks to all those who walked this before me. Your words have gotten me through!
