Timelines?

Hi Everyone,

 

So it's day 16 today. Have 15 full days under my belt. It feels like it's been forever since I've smoked.

I still get triggers and tell myself that is what it is. That I don't really want to smoke. The morning is always the hardest. Yesterday I had a lot of cravings too.

 

I am tired all the time it seems and have no energy or motivation. I need to mow the lawn and put up more drywall but I just don't feel like doing anything at all. I've been having trouble sleeping too some nights.

 

I know everyone is different but is there a time line on when I won't have to consciously fight these triggers? Also when is this extra energy I'm supposed to have kick in?

 

I also haven't gotten the horrid coughing up stuff that I've heard about from nearly everyone I know who quit smoking. I'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing. My daughter thinks it's because I didn't inhale deeply so there might not be that much stuff to cough up.
