Days 8 and 9

Blog Post created by Iamkfaz on Jun 14, 2017

Hello Everyone,  These last several days have been difficult.  I have not been feeling well.  Besides being VERY tired I have been have some problems with my voice and my throat does not feel right.  I don't know if I have some kind of infection, allergies (never had before) or a result of quitting.   If anyone has heard of a withdrawal issues involving your voice and throat I would love to hear about it.


I had to count the days for the title of this blog.  That was a surprise to me.  I thought I would just know it.  It seems I haven't been paying attention to the time.  The cravings are less than last week.  Some this week are pretty strong though.  Whenever I feel those urges I come to this site and read others posts and blogs.  I do learn a lot from those.  I read today about riding the urge like a ocean wave coming into shore.  I really liked that.  I can actually see it in my mind.  I compared it to child labor and watching the strength of the contractions on the monitor, starting low and growing, then peaking and going down. 


I will be out of touch this weekend, going camping.  Being outside is needed I think.  Between the not feeling well and some depression I think some time outside will be great.  I really want to feel better though, it is draining me.


Thanks, Karyn
