  7. Opah, As with any major life change, emotions are bound to run high...even OTT. Crying is good for us, it waters our eyes so they can grow. While I was rooting around in the stacks, I found this post from Joel. It may be helpful. Understanding the emotional loss experienced...

    Vaping Sends teen to Rehab

    Nicotine poisoning is a very real thing. Symptoms of nicotine poisoning Nicotine poisoning tends to occur in 2 stages. Within the first 15 to 60 minutes following exposure, symptoms are related to the stimulatory effects of nicotine and include: excess saliva in the mouth feeling nauseous stomach ache vomiting loss of appetite dehydration eye irritation headache dizziness tremors anxiety and restlessness confusion sweating cough rapid breathing increased heart rate elevated blood pressure Following this stage, the body begins to wind down. Nicotine's depressor effects appear within a few hours. These include: low blood pressure slow heart rate shallow breathing diarrhea fatigue weakness pale skin In extreme cases, symptoms include: seizures coma breathing difficulties respiratory failure Serious or fatal nicotine overdoses can occur.

    Junkie Thinking

    This whole thread is interesting, how we face reality and admit that we are nicotine addicts. For some, this admission is more difficult than for others. I was in complete denial about addiction for the 40 something years of smoking. It was only just before I quit that I flirted with calling myself a junkie. 'I'm going outside to shoot up', I would say as a quasi joke but, Deep Down, I knew. After I quit and educated myself here and there, denial was visible and ridiculous. Another post that addresses our 'junkie thinking' Red Flags.

  13. I have a big smile for you, too, Opah. You are doing great.
  14. I know this was an epiphany for me in my quit, The honesty that I showed myself in quitting, continues in every part of my life. I can trust myself and I am capable of anything I choose to do. After quitting the addiction, everything else is small potatoes, really. and, like you The victory is well earned and the benefits continue.

    What are you doing right now

    @Linda ThomasI was imagining you at the hospital with your parents, which got me to thinking how smoking enabled me to remove myself from situations or people. I had to go outside for a smoke. Now, I just get to go outside and away from the cray to center myself and have nice breaths of oxygen. The smokey part is unnecessary but, taking a break with yourself is very necessary. So, take breaks by yourself. Go wash your face. Take the stairs up or down to work off some anxiety. Find a secret waiting room. They have a chapel. Take care of yourself.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
