5 days smoke-free

Blog Post created by monikablazejewska on Feb 16, 2018

I have been a smoker pretty much since I was 16 years old, now I will turn 26 in few months, I recently decided to quit, and it was a sudden decision which I didn't plan to make. I saw a video on youtube of a person that had throat cancer and was talking using a hole in his neck, it was terrifying to me. I don't wanna end up like this, and throat cancer obviously isn't the only sickness that is a risk while smoking cigarettes everyday. so I just decided to quit, without thinking much about it. day 1 was fine, i felt cravings here and there but I was okay. then day 2 and 3 were a nightmare. I was just pissed off and annoyed, lethargic, sleepy, irritated and I just wanted to smoke. that's all I really wanted these two days. but I didn't because I was like screw giving up, I'm tough as hell i can do this. so here I am now, on the 5th day right now, actually I don't feel that bad, or I am not craving the smokes much, from time to time yes but not like I expected. the only thing which is scary is CONSTIPATION, i tried mild laxatives for it and they kind of helped, but i don't wanna depend on laxatives to be able to go, ya know.....anyways, i'm also breaking out on my face even though my period is not even around yet this month, and i cough a whole lot, so generally it's not all fun and games, but I want to be smokefree, so i'm ready to go through this. I dont know where I was going with this post anymore...I guess I just needed to vent.
