Quit by default (due lockdown)

Recommended Posts

Your need for water could be just because you are thirsty.

Smoking hid so many things our bodies needed.

I would light a smoke instead of have lunch.  Light a smoke instead of having a glass of water.

Light a smoke instead of listening to my body or,  light up a smoke instead of dealing with a situation.

 

Now,  you are able to remember yourself, remember your body and listen to its needs.

 

Here's whats going on, you fabulous nicotine free creature, you.

thank you sazerac for the inspirational post .

 

next step is one month now. 5 opponents down and this next fight may last a while. 

9 rounds of one month each. well- best is to go for a quick knockout like i did in the last 5.

thank you to all my trainers out here. you turned a weakling into a fighter, lol.

Hi H...

All sounds positive ...and on track ....good to hear the cough has gone ....

You might not feel as hungry....because you are filled up with water more ....

Good job !!!!

l

ol, yes so true

 

i seem to simply love water now - not just to quench the thirst but the feel good factor i feel after i gulp down a few sips. never had much when i was on the poison. coke, coffee, never water. now i have quit all these and replaced all with just warm water and honey.

 

even today and right now i feel like my mouth is parched dry. i must really seal a tap onto my mouth and connect a discharge hose at the other end, lol. my body must be working in overdrive mode and flushing the toxins out.

 

the never ending dryness is the only side effect that stood out in my quit. nothing else really lasted long. maybe a week or so and i will be back to normal. let me see. 

 

rest is all is well and all you magicians out here - thank you again and take good care.

random update - 

 

i did cough out a bit of  poison, lol. a light cough and that is all. why i am posting this insignificant thing is this - once i coughed out the poison - i feel a cool cool feeling in my throat. as if i had a icy mint. this happened ever since my quit =. when i cough out this poison i feel the throat turn cold, very cold on the inside and i can feel the air going in and out. today i coughed out after some few days. i think i may have logged my last cough out before today as well

 

just logged it for record keeping, lol. maybe make an excel sheet with the data after 1 year of the quit.

Hey Hh,

 

Just wondering how the weekend shaped up for you.   Just reread this thread.  Amazing!!! You are FREE.    What an incredible turn of events.  Considering you had no idea you were quitting and once the idea came about ...  YOU quit.

Chuckled  and nodded at your posting of THIS  IS THE QUIT because once you give your all, it is all or nothing.      I can relate.  My last relapse lasted around 5 years.   I had the mindset (of which I am usually VERY SET on some things) that once I picked up smoking again it was a forever thing.   BELIEVED that junkie thinking, too....for almost 5 years.  Surprised and grateful beyond words that my belief was terribly wrong.   I have quit.  Yay!    

Really glad you are clicking along on the QT track.   We have sticky quits!!!

The photo from the ship deck..... thanks for sharing that bit of beauty and awe.

 

OIP.uCnaah0gqOMpmMnTvwvfPgHaEK?w=300&h=1  you got this.

oh my god - it is my GAD !!

 

the cough is not regular or persistent. like today i woke up and felt a slight cough. once the poison was coughed out i felt normal and the coughing disappeared. lasted about an hour on the higher side - a bit less than an hour actually. 

yes - what you say is true .hats off lady - for the way you fought back -and for being my superhero 

 

take good care of yourself

hello darcy, 

 

first let me admit that i love how gently and so beautifully you post. it gladdens the reader and that is something very few of us can lay claim to. so thank you for the posts - no - not just this one. 

 

i think a quit is more mental than physical. i just used my  strongest flaws to quit. turned them into my strengths

i am stubborn as hell - extreme as hell - just bribed these two to get on my side, lol

 

i need to quit - not want to quit : that sums it all up. 

 

i am so happy that you liked the pic, that is so awesome to hear . i am not hulk - lol, wish i were - lol.

 

take care and thank you so much for all that inspiration and joy you spread. you are so sacred to all of us out here .

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.
