This morning before I took my pill I ate a bowl of oatmeal and let it sit for a few minutes. My stomach felt a little upset, but it was nothing like the nausea I experienced yesterday. A few hours later I was a little nauseous, but I ate a small snack and everything returned to normal. As long as it continues like this I'll be all right. After yesterday I was afraid to take the pill, but today was much better.
So tomorrow is going to be odd because I start taking two pills. I'm a bit worried because of the nausea thing, but hopefully I can keep it under control.
So, overall today has been pretty good. I don't feel like I'm getting quite as much out of my cigarettes as I did before. It's hard to explain, but it's kind of like smoking an ultra-light, I guess. It's there, but you don't feel it as much.
I've got to think of new ways to take breaks at work. Currently my day is divided up by cigarrette breaks: 9:00 am, 10:30 am, 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm. I'm so used to segmenting my work day this way that I think this is going to be the hardest part of the entire quitting thing. Plus, I don' t leave my desk at work unless for a smoke break. I even spend my unpaid lunch hour working while I eat lunch at my desk. So I really really really need to start thinking of alternative ways to get a few minutes away from my desk every couple hours.
Finally, I would like to thank people for actually reading and responding to my blogs. I just joined this site and already I feel like I'm a part of a community. I know this is really going to help me quit! For good! Also, if you have a Chantix blog please leave me a message and I'll be happy to link to you. It might be a little while, though -- I need some free time to set it up, and right now I don't have a lot of that ;-) But I will get your link on my blog!
Thanks everyone, and 4 days till Q-day!
