Hi Everyone, I'm new to this site and excited to say that I reached day 4. I'm going cold turkey. My quit day was a long time coming. I'm so glad I made it this far! I have not reached day 2 in over 30 years. I had those nasty nicotine hangover days and vowed not to smoke ever again, but always started again. Well it happened again and I've surpassed my quit record. I was tired of feeling icky, ugly and unhealthy.
Yesterday, day 3, was the hardest; I know there will be more challenging days ahead. I'm paying close attention to what triggers me and sadly, it's everything. I've used smoking to handle my stress and reward myself. It's literally an hour to hour thing vs day to day for me. I can't wait to reach my first smoke-free week for the rest of my smoke-free life.
