Hi all, I'm posting here because this is my most active group. I was curious to know who all used to smoke (cigs, not anything else) but has since quit?
My reason for asking is because I had my last smoke on Saturday night and I'm not in the process of quitting. I'm using the patch and I'm not going to lie, I'm probably going to flip my lid here soon. I was curious as to what you ladies used for distractions when you started craving one once you quit?
On Saturday I'm buing myself a bass guitar, but until then I need something to help me distract myself from the cravings. PLEASE HELP!!!!
Thank you ladies for all your support. I have stopped using the patch as it's really hurting bad. So I'm going the cold turkey route. I'm at the point that I just may kill someone, and the immediately drive to the gas station and buy some smokes. This is ridiculously hard. It's been extra hard because my SO didn't quit yet, he said he's not ready, which I get that it'll never happen if you aren't ready to quit, but holy moly smelling him when he comes in, mmmmm he smells goood!
I'm not sure if it's normal or not but I've been so crabby that I've cried from time to time. This withdrawl business is HORRIBLE!!!!! I knew this was going to suck but I didn't realize it would suck this bad. I quit while I was pregnant because literally the smell of tobacco made me throw up, and then started up again after DD was born.... I'm so mad at myself to this day for starting up again...
Thanks again everyone!
