Day 5: It's a Good Day!

The best one yet! I haven't had a true craving today at all. Of course I "want" one, but that's not the same as craving one.

Yesterday was so bad. I came home, danced the hell out of my DDR pads, then laid down on my couch. I was on the couch from about 7:30 until 9:30, where I slept on and off. Then I went to bed and slept there. If I was asleep, I could avoid the cravings at least. I did manage to wake up long enough to yell at my husband for not talking to me about quitting, and not being supportive, and "DON'T YOU KNOW I NEED SUPPORT AND I'VE HAD A REALLY BAD DAY AND DON'T YOU CARE" before falling back asleep. Yeah. Good thing he loves me.

But today I feel pretty darn good. Which is a relief, because the past 4 days have really been weighing me down. You might or might not hear from me again today, but you can be pretty certain that after today you won't hear from me until Sunday. But this is a GOOD thing. Going off for the weekend to my Grandmother's house where I absolutely CANNOT smoke. I'm very excited about that.

Finally, about the QuitMeter thing, I'm not sure what's wrong. When I tried at home it works just fine, but when I try from work the site simply does not work. Now, if we're banned from something at work, it will get blocked, and we get a nice little "STOP" page, but that's not the case here. So I created one from home and placed on my page. The only problem is, I can't see it at work. Also, I visited the page at work before I quit. I don't know what the problem is now.

Congrats! Sounds like you've made it past the hardest part. Days 3-5 were the hardest for me. I still hit rough spots, but I'm able to get through them now. Way to go!!!

I agree with got easier for me after the first seven days. As you heard, every now and again the cravings can still come back but it is NOTHING like fiending every hour or two when you do not smoke in active addiction. I am so glad that I do not have to go light up multiple times daily. Even when the hard parts come, I am still grateful I made the decision to stop. Have a great trip!
