So, I’m trying again.
I’ve stopped smoking for the 3rd time in my life. It’s only the second day and I’m ready to kill someone for a smoke. I know these first two weeks are the toughest and I’m doing my best to get through this period.
I’ve decided to NOT tell my co-workers, none of whom smoke, just because I want to see if they’ll notice that I’m not disappearing for 5 minutes at a time every hour. I’m using the patch, which worked for me before, to help take the edge off. I’m starting to notice some odd smells, which occasionally makes me check my shoes and my armpits. Hopefully my senses of smell and taste will continue to get stronger.
I’m definitely feeling the physical effects of not smoking. I’m feeling a little shaky and not at all myself. My mouth is dry and my head a little light but I’m sure I’ll survive.
Anyhoo, I’m working on day 2. We’ll see how it goes.
