Today is my second day of not smoking, and my first day of using the gum. All I can say is......wow. I smoke less that 10 cigarettes a day, unless I'm drinking then that number can climb very high. But I feel like total, absolute hell. I'm very tired, WAY bitchier than I thought I would be, and for some strange reason my face feels swollen. It doesn't look swollen, but my eyes feel weird.
Anyway, they say cigarette cravings only last 2-3 minutes, and I have found that to be true. But since I skipped my morning cigarette routine, I'm craving them now. I don't even smoke when I'm at work, so craving them now is kind of irritating me. Well, everything is irritating me, so no surprise there.
I really think I'm going to succeed this time. I don't know if it's because I have the gum if I need it or if it's because I'm just ready, but whatever the reason, I'm really looking forward to becoming an ex-smoker.
