Well, hello, strangers.
So after 10 years of smoking cigarettes, I have just survived my first 24 hours smoke free.
It has been a hard day. I have been almost constantly thinking about cigarettes all day. At home, I had a stressful phone conversation - this was the first time it was REALLY difficult not to smoke. Then I ate; I ALWAYS have a cigarette right after I finish a meal, so I had to chew on a pencil after that. I live 13 miles away from where I work, so during my drive to work, it was also very difficult... I started chewing on my lip but stopped myself. (Another bad habit I am trying to break.)
I decided to quit now because first off, I will be 25 in March and I didn't want to be a smoker for 11 years. Secondly, my boyfriend had to serve 2 days in jail for a stupid driving offense. Since he's in there for 48 hours and can't smoke, I just decided I wouldn't smoke either. Then when I pick him up from jail and he asks for a cigarette, I can say "NEVER AGAIN!"
And basically I am posting this here because I am looking for all of the support I need. People to hold me accountable.
Anybody else ever quit smoking?
