75 Days of Freedom!

Blog Post created by SarahC-03-10-2018 on May 24, 2018

I can't believe that I have gone 75 days without smoking! I am enjoying the freedom from cigarettes. It is still nice to go for a walk and not have to cram a pack of smokes and a lighter in my pocket. It's wonderful to not be self-conscious about smelling like cigarettes.

 

I think I have gotten out of the stage where I was constantly snacking. I don't spend almost every waking moment thinking about my quit anymore. I am having a hard time trying to figure out what to do with the emotions that I used to suppress with smoking. I am feeling pretty depressed and I'm not sure if it still from quitting or if it's something that was masked by smoking. Considering going to see my doctor about it.

 

I've been on the patches and will be going off this weekend. I've been on the 7mg (lowest dose) for several weeks now and have been waiting for a 3 day weekend to stop all together. I feel like I have been doubting myself for most of my quit because I haven't felt as if I was strong enough to do it without the patches. If I can get past this, I am hoping to feel more confident in my quit.
