21 days, 525 cigarettes not smoked. I'm realizing part of the reason I still feel so horrible (Still tight chested, hard to catch my breath, all day urges) may be that although I haven't smoked in 3 weeks, the first 6 days of that was using a 21mg patch and supplementing that with more than a few pieces of 4mg nicotine gum.
Considering the fact that it could take a while to purge the nicotine out of my system and then have my body adjust to it being fine, that may explain things.
That said, as bad as it's been lately, today has been even worse so far. I'll say again, there is a 0% chance I'll smoke - I'm not quitting, I quit - but I am truly miserable and suffering in a big way. I just want to sleep for a month and see if I feel any better then.
A deep dark voice inside my head says like it or not, get use to it, this is as good as it gets.
Oh well, it is what it is and maybe tomorrow will be better.
