At midnight my time, I entered my 5th day of freedom. I feel good about that, and I also feel better physically, mentally and emotionally versus when I smoked. But I can’t get into a normal sleep schedule. Between this ongoing shelter in place/quarantine and also this newfound freedom from smoking, to just general angst about money, bills, and uncertainty—I can’t get a normal night’s sleep. Last night I didn’t fall asleep until 4 AM, and slept in till 11 AM. So naturally I was out of sorts most of yesterday. Tonight, I’m still awake and wondering if I should just get up and watch tv for a while. I’m thinking this is a side effect of quitting smoking. Oh God, I hope it passes soon. Anyways thank you for reading this and I hope I get some sleep tonight.
