Well today I quit smoking. I woke up at 8. I decided I was going to try the nicotine lozenge's. I have tried the patch two or three other times, and found I was still getting mad cravings, and headaches. The first few days. So far I have used three Lozenge's today, and every time my headache has gone away. I did have some really hard situations to get through today. One of the people I work with pulled out a cigarette in my car, but the other worker with me who also smokes yelled at him. Told him to respect me cause I am quitting. Other than that just walking into work, and seeing everyone standing outside to smoke was also very hard. Just the smell of smoke is a trigger. I however was able to fight these triggers.
My cravings are still there but I am not having a problem with them. This is seriously like a new experience for me. I am so used to fighting hard, and to tell you the truth I feel like I am on my 5th day of not smoking. Now I understand I am still on the first day, and have a long and hard fight to get to five days. This time however feels different. I know I can do it this time. I am happy, and excited. Who would have ever thought someone would be happy and excited on their first day. I can't wait till my one week, one month, 6 month and 1 year anniversary of quitting.
