Cool. Have you gotten crabby when quitting before? I sure do.

I understand about the New year's thing. My Doc ordered it on the 28th, an appointment I had for three months. the pharmacy played pussyfoot with the Doc and insurance company, finally by Friday I asked our Facility Pharmacist what I could do about it. She had my prescription filled in 15 minutes and I started the next day...New Year's Day.

This is NOT a New Years Resolution...it's a Life Resolution and Change.

Just in time, too...I spent the day in the hospital.

Please be careful with the blood pressure.
If you normally have a problem with it that may be OK but if it isn't normal for you please call your doctor and report it.
I know I am new here and don't know any of you but for your own sake please keep an eye on it or report it.

Thanks for your concern and advice. I do have high blood pressure and it was abnormal for me. Actually, I am an RN, but I appreciate your concern.
The problem with my blood pressure won't be happening again.

Day three...still no cravings, no urges.

That's because you are tougher than a stupid cigarette!

You have my support, Fiona. I haven't had a cigarette in more than 35 years, BUT I can attest that for close to 20 years after I quit, I still had powerful triggers that made me think about lighting up again. Thank goodness I didn't do that.

One "incentive" that worked for me was to put into a piggy bank DAILY the amouht of money I would have spent on cigarettes. It wasn't long before I had money for a trip, dinners out, new shoes, all manner of things that were previously not in my budget.

Just remember to take one day at a time, and not to beat yourself up when you fall off the wagon. Just climb right back on. Your health will improve, and that, hopefully, is a powerful incentive.
