Good Morning Community,
I have completed my first day, 24 hours taken 1 hour a time. There were times of some heavy craving. I used my Black Pepper Essential Oil (smelling it helps) and deep breathing. I acknowledged every craving as they came and then said "no more, I am done".
Every hour I wrote down how I was feeling at that time. There were times I was not very happy and other times where I felt okay. It seemed to get a little bit easier with each passing hour. By the time 7:00PM came around I was SOOO tired I went to bed. I slept for almost 12 hours. That was very surprising to me. I guess every quit is different, I have not had this happen in the past.
Today is Day 2 and I have no doubt that I will not smoke. I am doing this at home by myself. I wouldn't say this is any harder or easier than do this at the office. At home, by myself, I can stay in my most comfy clothes and not have to hid anything I'm feeling; cravings, anger and sadness. These feelings are all perfectly normal and should be expected. I am being of accepting of all these feelings, I acknowledge, accept and then move on.
Last night I celebrated my Day Won with some ice cream before bed. That was great, I very rarely eat dessert and last night it was wonderful. I am looking forward in continuing to reach my first week, then every week after that.
High Five to a Smoke Free Day!
