So yesterday I stopped smoking and started the gum. A day earlier than planned. Yesterday went great. The gum curbed the cravings for the most part. I was controlling my attitude all day. Night time hit and the chaos of getting the dogs and kids ready for bed really seemed to tick me off.
Today is day two and I feel a little edgy. Not too awful. I do have a very long drive tonight (4 hours) so I'm hopefully going to be able to keep it together. Luckily, 2 of those hours I'll be alone. That way I can sing (or screech) at the top of my lungs to make myself forget about the dirty cigarettes I used to smoke.
And one more thing.....this gum is no joke! Last night I chewed my last piece about 30 minutes before I went to bed. I felt exhausted but couldn't sleep. And when I finally did sleep, I had weird dreams and tossed and turned. It wasn't restful at all! Why does this gum give me such horrible hiccups? I'm 40 years old and have been getting the hiccups like a 2 year old. Lol.
