Quitting smoking

Recommended Posts

Ok so it has been 5 days since I had a cigarette...yes I am quitting smoking and I hate every second of the day since I made this decision. Is anyone else going through this right now? I decided I did not want to be a smoking and fat bride. So I am quitting smoking so I can breath so I can exercise but all I have done is eat, eat, and eat oh and my new addiction is soda (that's great for the butt). MY FI is working overnight tonight (FDNY) and I want to drive to the store buy a $10 pack of cigarettes smoke them all and lie to his face when he ask if I cheated. If no one sees it does it count? Thanks for listening to me vent and if you have any tips I would appreciate them...

Wait first of all cigarettes are $10 where you live? wtf.gif

 

Second, congratulations on day 5!!! It sure is tough, isn't it? I've been there and it seems like it would be easier to kick crack! A lot of people, on BDW too, have been able to quit cold turkey and good for you! Stick with it, the longer you go without the easier it becomes. I sort of cheated if you can call it that - I saw a hypnotherapist. I still had moments of cravings but they were much more managable IMO.

 

Whatever you do don't buy a pack! If you have to have one the first week when it is super tough, bum one - ONE. A few doctors have told me before that tapering off is as effective as cold turkey but I think we're all different. Never have a pack in your possession again if you are truly trying to quit or you will sabotage yourself. Hang in there, you can do it hug2.gif

I am not quitting smoking but I am quitting soda! At one point recently i was drinking a 2 liter bottle of diet pepsi a day. So after finding out I have hypothyrodism and that was why I was so tired and drinking the soda for the caffeine I decided to quit, plus a friend told me about an article she read about how horrible aspirtame(sp?) is for you! I have made it passed the killer headaches, thank goodness!

 

Just remember it takes 21 days to make a habit! So hopefully your new habit will be not smoking!

 

As for tips, I have heard to drink water, play with a pen or find something to do when you have an urge! Good luck! May we both be successful with our goals!

You can totally do this. Stay strong - when you need one, come here and post - type till your little fingers are so tired they couldn't dream of holding a cigarette.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
