Today is day number 3. It hasn't been as bad as days 1 & 2, but I still feel pretty ... slugish, I guess. It's hard for me to get out of bed and face the fact that I am now a non-smoker, and it's hard for me to sleep at night. Last night I woke up at 3:00 am and likely never fell back asleep.
The full Chantix dose makes me nauseous on and off. Not really really bad, but enough to upset my routine. Of course, when I feel like I'm going to throw up, a cigarette is the last thing on my mind ;-)
This is the second day now (Monday and today) that I haven't been able to concentrate much at work. I did do some stuff today -- a vast improvement over Monday where I accomplished absolutely nothing. Hopefully tomorrow will be better, however I have a feeling I won't be back in the groove for a week or two. Good thing I've been super productive over the course of this year; maybe they'll overlook this week or two.
My husband quit smoking the same day as me, only he is using the patch. It worked fine for him in the past. He has a very strong will, and last time we quit he was the one who pretty much forced me through. But yesterday morning he goes, "I feel like having a cigarrette... but you probably can't, can you?" I couldn't believe it, and I let him know: "OF COURSE you feel like having a cigarette! You're quitting! I'm quitting! NO we can't go outside and smoke." I was sooo proud of diverting this situation, cause usually I'm the weak one. However, for the next hour after he mentioned it, I had one heck of a craving. But hey, we got through it!
So ... that's all. Fighting the urge to smoke. At no point have I actually considered going out to smoke. Not once have I come that close. I'm proud of myself, and I thank you guys for all your support! I check my comments & other people's blogs numerous times a day to keep going. Thanks so much!!!
