It has been 5 days since I have had a cigarette.  Everyone around me smokes and yet I haven’t even taken a drag.  Though I will admit I asked for one from my sister but she refused to share.  I have not had a drag even though Mikey is cutting his last molars and being a complete PIA.  I have not  had a drag even though we had a death in the family of someone I was very close to.

Day 3 was pretty bad as is today.

I remember people telling me that it takes 48 hours for the nicotine to clear your body, then I read it  can take up to 42 hours.  Today I read it can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks.  I haven’t even cleared a week yet, I don’t know how I’m supposed to go forever.

A fun fact about qutting smoking that I learned today.

The diziness is just your brain getting too much oxygen…that explains it.

    WYG Dori! You can DO IT! I did it- 3 years and 2 months ago. I was just talking to DH about how I’ve finally lost the urge (for good) recently. It’s a constant battle, but if you have the WILL, you can do it. Congratulations on 5 days! Take it one day at a time- dont think about a week from now. Think about each moment and go from there. It WILL get easier. (HUGS)
