I Quit!

No! Not that!

Today marks day 25 without a single puff of a cigarette. I am using a crutch, Nicotine Pouches called On. I started with 4mg then switched to 2mg about a week ago. At 2 weeks in, I went through 2 days of bad withdrawal symptoms, sharp headaches, nausea, messed up dreams and that depressed feeling that almost feels like loss if you've had that experience but after those 2 days, I felt a calming and my confidence that I have put down cigarettes forever is 1000%. I am finally in control.

I don't care if I am addicted to Nicotine right now using my crutch, I'll work that out through time but breaking the physical and mental addiction is the priority and I am well on that way as not smoking has become the norm in my daily routine now.....which is pretty much nothing different, I just don't go outside to smoke now.

Being around smokers doesn't bother me much except the smell afterwards....I've found myself putting on a fresh shirt after being around my Dad or a friend that fishes with me. I suppose there is alot of truth when former smokers say, when you're ready to quit, you'll quit. I was ready.

I've cleaned the interior of my truck spotless and then ran an Ozone Machine and then Bombed it with an air cleaner and the truck smells awesome! My clothes smell great! Heck, I guess I smell great.....maybe a little fishy. LOL. I am looking forward to tomorrow, next week, next month, next year....

Congrats! At 25 days your far from being out of the woods but it’s a great start so stay committed and focused. Remember, you can never have “just one.” You are right in that it’s more mental then a physical addiction. I read somewhere that the physical addiction to nicotine only last a few days and after that it’s all in your head. Changing routines is the hard part. You can do this! Good luck.

as a side note, don’t you love a clean truck? I have a 2003 GMC with an interior that looks showroom new and getting inside it keeps my head in a good place.
