I had my last cigarette at about 4.30 this morning and I have not smoked since. I have to be honest with you, I found it a little difficult when I got up this morning. My usual routine is to make coffee and then smoke and I had to remind myself that I am not smoking anymore. For a split second there I almost had a ‘f*** it!’ moment, but I had a word with myself and slapped on that patch. I know that if I can do this, running for me will be so much better, not to mention the fact that my high blood pressure will go down and I will live longer!
A couple of times today I thought about smoking…but picked up the inhalator instead. It seems to work…well put it this way, almost 10 hours later and I have not smoked…yes you did hear me right, I did say 10.
I thought I might have a problem at dinnertime. The first thing I do when I have eaten a meal is light a cigarette…not today. Again I just reached for the inhalator and I was fine.
I thought that by now I would be going crazy for a smoke and that fact that I’m not surprises me. I am just going to take it a day at a time but so far Day 1 appears to be a success.
I just hope tomorrow is the same…
