Days 3, 4 & 5

Blog Post created by IndependentMe on Jan 29, 2018

I haven't been online much the last few days but I am still hanging on to my quit with fierce determination!

 

Day 3 was ...... OH WOOOOW. ... yeah, it was that bad. I honestly didn't think I was going to make it through without caving. BUT I DID!!!!

 

Day 4 was actually really great.... until I got home from work.

 

I've definitely determined my quit is much much easier when I get up at 5am, have a good breakfast & meditation,  leave for work at 6:15, work til 7pm & get home with just enough time & energy for dinner, a shower & a few pages of quiet reading time before bed.... do it all again the next day. Today was my 1st day off since starting my quit & it's been pretty horrible to be honest. I've stayed busy, hydrated well, ate all 3 meals & 1 healthy snack, meditated, lots of deep breathing, relaxing bath, etc.... even still.... I have been plagued by frequent & intense craves. So much so that I am definitely starting Wellbutrin SR first thing in the morning. I wanted to try with just the patch 1st... and I have.... while I'm still hanging in there, I cannot imagine regularly going through days like #3 & today. I'm utilizing every weapon in my arsenal to make sure this is my final quit..... and I don't lose my mind or my husband in the process!!!

 

Heres to approaching day 6 & not giving up!!!
