Today is my day 5!! Feeling a little anxious but overall pretty darn good. I'm proud of myself. Going to investigate the gym in my neighborhood to add a more healthier lifestyle. Keep me in your hearts and prayers through smoke free day 5.
Congrats on Day Five! Going to the gym is a GREAT idea. Exercising will produce that hit of dopamine you are missing from not smoking, will improve your mood and start to create that NEW, healthier you.
I could not agree more with YoungAtHeart about the importance of exercise. I was really sick when I quit and it took a while for me to recover enough so I could exercise. I have not forgotten getting a stationary bike and getting on it for my first try at that form of exercise. I felt AMAZING. I could not go fast and I could not go on for very long, BUT, what I was able to do made me feel like a million dollars. I have a better bike now and I do ten miles, five days a week. It makes me feel like I am taking care of myself. In the summer, I use an outdoor pool and do water aerobics also five days a week, weather permitting. It is a really good way to solidify your commitment to quitting. I am really happy for you.
