Day 1 (Saturday Noon – Sunday Noon)
The triggers were minimal. I spent most of the time binge watching.
Day 2 (Sunday Noon – Monday Noon)
I added more activity and trigger situations. Dinner at my brother’s includes before, during and after dinner drinks. I never smoked around my family so I have no immediate connection between drinking and smoking. I would smoke once I was back at home. I got home, the trigger was small and I was able to ride it out.
I went to the clinic to talk with the nurse practitioner who prescribed the Bupropion for smoking cessation. I told her in the future she needs to suggest a quit program when she writes the prescription. I had to find out about it myself. I only found out about a program because I was trying to find out how the medication was suppose to help me quit smoking. I wound up educating her about the EXCommunity and other websites. She was appreciative.
I do bookkeeping for a local farmer who smokes. She doesn’t smoke indoors but she stepped outside when I was leaving and lit up. I didn’t ask her not to smoke. I rode it out. I left there and went to get an estimate on some damage my car sustained. The estimate was way higher than I expected. Money issues are triggers. I was able to ride it out. I ate a whole lot of atomic balls. My mouth was on fire and my tongue raw but I rode it out.
Day 3 (Monday Noon – Tuesday Noon)
The evening was tough. The village did fireworks and my dog is afraid of the noise. He gets frantic and inconsolable. His frustration frustrates me. I ate more atomic balls.
Since my quit date, I’ve been feeling sleepy. I don’t feel tired but I want to take a nap. Tonight will be another tough night for my little sweetheart with the fireworks. I’m having dinner at my brother’s again – paella, yummy! I’m out of atomic balls. I hope the dollar store or drug store is open.
