Day 5.... The craves are fewer but more intense. Deep breathing seems to help, plus keeping in mind that if I slip/relapse/fail, I have to go through this psycho circus again. I'm thinking I'd rather go through another drug free childbirth than do this again.
Some things I've noticed that I was warned about: coughing? Check. Sinus Drainage? Check. Being Hangry at the drop of a hat? Check. This is the unfun side of quitting.
But there are some pluses: I'm not wheezing as much anymore and haven't had to use my rescue inhaler but two times in the past 5 days. Also, I have an appointment with my PCP next week and I want to see his face when I tell him it's been 10 days smoke free. The next one will be the cardiologist in May. But.... I'm getting ahead of myself. I just hope to make it through tomorrow.
