Well knock me down with a puff of smoke...

I don't know where my head has been lately, but I just realized that I'm two days into my third week as a non-smoker. That's right, I'm about one hour away from closing out day 16 and beginning day seventeen.

I hadn't even given it much thought... Smile

It's willpower... It's mind over matter... That's what it all boils down to; you make a conscious decision and you stick to your guns no matter what.

Regards,

Hey, guess what?

I'm into something like the 12th hour of my first day, and it hurts. If I make it a week... I can do anything.

I envy you. Blum 3

Too late... we're unionized...

Congrats, William!

Keep at it, Roy!

We'll all have to get together and have a beer and talk about how much we used to LOVE smoking while drinking beer...

Fool

Seriously, though... keep at it, guys... It gets easier.

urrrgh

2:55pm on day two of quitting, everything at work is p*ssing me off, I hate every customer and wanna tell em exactly what I think...

But I still haven't had a cigarette. I still don't want one, I'm constantly aware that having one would relieve this stress, but I don't have the urge to go out and buy some.

I guess this is kinda easy, it just feels like crap.

Don't feel too bad about getting pissed off at everything and everyone, that goes away after a few days. Most people will understand if they know that you're trying to quit smoking. Smile

You should hear me around home; I let everybody know what I think. Wink

Keep it up... If I can quit, anybody can...

Burning...

Did anyone else get a 'burning' feeling in their chest for the first few days?

Burning?

No... well, not any more than usual...

I have asthma, so I didn't notice a lot of the rehabilitory effects for a looooong time.

The worst thing I dealt with was being high from the increased oxygen levels in my blood. Both my wife and I felt light headed for a week or two... you know... kinda like a "three toke" feelin... y'know? I know you know...

Duuuuuuude.....

Anyway, to quote the old commercial: "The burn means it's working!"
