A couple of weeks ago now I posted No More Smoking: Hold Me Accountable! OK, so I am going to be honest here and tell you that didn’t work out! Well, not that day anyway.
However, this Sunday I went the whole day without a cigarette. My husband asked me if I wanted to go outside with him and I said “no, I’m good” and just like that I haven’t smoked since then.
It isn’t really anything, I have quit for a few days multiple times. However, I haven’t even had a craving or resisted the urge to smoke so far, so that is something.
According to my app. (Smoke Free)…I am now 70 hours smoke free. I have regained 17.3 hours of my life. I have “not smoked” 15 cigarettes. (I never smoked very much, only 4 or 5 at the end of the night.)
I am standing strong right now. My husband hasn’t even asked me if I want to go out with him since Sunday night. Which means without me saying anything, he realizes that I am trying not to smoke.
Usually my biggest problem is that I become irritable when trying to quit and then I get anxious, so I have a cigarette. I haven’t found that to be true over the last few days and typically the irritability gets better every day anyway.
I thought for sure I was setting myself up for failure when I got my period (sorry for the TMI) first thing Monday morning. Between the 2, I would have thought my husband would have to pack up and move out for a day or two just to survive, LOL!!
