That’s right. After 14 years of being a smoker(and I’m only 27), I’ve set my quit date for this coming Sunday. I’ll be going cold turkey-even with patches/gum/prescriptions I’d eventually have to smoke the last one, so why not drop from almost 2 packs a day to none all at once? Plus, I really just don’t want to anymore.
I’ve done it before, for a year, then started dating a smoker, and picked it back up again.
I’ve downloaded my silkquit meter-it currently shows -1 day, -23 hours -3 minutes until I quit(it’s actually less-I think it assumed that today was just starting, because my computer clock is right).
This is huge-I’ve made vague attempts before, but I wasn’t serious. I’ve been smoking for so long that it’s part of my identity. Any advice, websites, or general encouragement would be appreciated.
I’ve been taking off weight-what’s the best way for me to avoid putting on weight while I go through the worst of the cravings?
Wow…I’m nervous about quitting, but at the same time, I’m excited. Make sense?
