Feelings on the 1st day without a cigarette!
After reading a book by Alan Carr and going through the most excruciating cold + coughing my lungs out I decided to give up. I have been smoking for 6 years and have had enough. I only spent 24 hours without smoking once before but it was forced then, this time I made a choice.
If it was a normal day, by this time I would have had 5 cig. today already (+ I’ve only been awake for 3 hours!). It sounds ridiculous, only three hours without smoking (plus another 12 I spent sleeping because of my cold). I’ve got a slight headache for the second time today. They come, stay for a while and go again. It’s the nicotine showing itself up. But I’m gonna make it. All I can think about is having a smoke and then how sick it will make me!
