First of all, I work 3rd shift, 11:pm-7:am. Waking up and getting ready for work was not so bad. But last night at work was a bit shaky. I end up apologizing to two of my coworkers for outburst and had to start monitoring my behavior. I struggled most coming home from work. I never drove without smoking. but I made it through so far. I found out the key to getting past urges is to never entertain the thoughts, they will pass.
Almost 2 Day's!
Tammie's Quit Smoking Journal
Well I made it through day one! I'm using the last three patches I had from 2006. They were expired but they are working. I called my doctor today so he could call in a 21mg nicotine patch so that i could purchase them through my FSA. They were $70.00 for a 2 weeks supply. Negatively I said to myself 'How expensive for just a 2 weeks supply". Then I thought to myself that's the cost of 2 cartons of cigarettes! So that squashed my negative thinking immediately! I'm getting more enthused about this every minute.
