So I quit smoking last week and I was pumped day one. It’s expensive, smells bad, and my family hates it and it’s obviously super bad for you. And for myself I want to be a 19 year old who doesn’t have that gross cough that comes along with it, etc. But on day 6, everyday it feels harder! When it comes to stress and anxiety I depended on them to calm me down, and any other emotions I felt, a cigarette always accompanies them. So needless to say I’m feeling really uncomfortable. I just have to ride out the cravings and keep going. But sometimes in those moments, a cigarette sounds good. Ahhh, a lot of it’s definitely mental but that mental piece might be the hardest part.
Can anyone relate?
