22 days today!! I’ve discovered that if I don’t drink and drink and drink I crave a cigarette more often. Why is that? Anyway, I’ve never been a big fluid person, so it’s hard for me. It feels me up and I lose my appetite for food. I will persevere though. Think I’ll step up the carbs and protein and work out a little. I can’t afford to lose too much weight. Hope it works!

Good job on reaching 22 days Gus! You're on your way and yes, drinking lots of water helps keep your mouth busy, fill your stomach and at least temporarily take your mind off the cravings. Exercise will give you a dopamine release too that will help to replace the dopamine hit smoking gave you. It's all good - stay on track and you'll get there.

 

Glad you are still on track with your quit :)

Thanks y’all!🙂 I forget that my body has 35 years worth of chemicals to wash out. 

It takes a while but you'll feel (and breathe) so much better once you've been off the smokes for awhile :)

Great start to your quit Gus.  Water is a wonderful way to wash away those craves.  Sometimes it is hard not to replace smoking with sweets and that leads to weight gain.  Stay close and keep us up on your journey.  Your experiences may help someone else that is struggling with quitting.

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.
