Have you noticed some of these "lost" long-term quits?

<t>Wow, this was a good one for me right now. I almost never come on here anymore because I am a year and a half into what feels like a very successful quit. Every now and then I'll be in a situation where others are smoking and inevitably I'll think - "hey, I could join them in just one." I never d...

Day 10 and a new feeling

<t>Good for you. Today you noticed that you didn't miss your morning cig. Very soon you won't even notice! I was prompted to quit by the onset of shortness of breath. When that happened, I thought, "well, that's enough of THAT." What I didn't realize after smoking for so many years is that I was a l...

Thank you, everyone, for your responses and for Joel's post about sleep adjustments. It's always good to hear from someone else who can relate.

sleepy

<t>I have read lots about insomnia being a common side effect of nic-withdrawal. However, I'm finding that I can't get enough sleep since my quit (2 weeks ago, btw!!) I have dozed off during my sons' last 4 karate classes - it's getting somewhat embarassing. Nicotine is a stimulant isn't it? Could i...

Expecting too much too soon?

<t>I read a thread called "Cilia" by Joel which is very good. Once I took some time to understand what we have done to our lungs for so many years, I am surprised I am breathing at all. I don't expect all that damage to heal in 5 days. Most people have ordinary colds that last longer than that. <br/...

Craving

<r>Hi Christine- <br/> Me again. Yes, I was so excited to have completed day 3 but, like you the worst day was #4. I had planned on spending the day in my garden but am ashamed to admit that I instead spent the day in bed - crying at times. <br/> <br/> I'm far from an expert at this, but looking bac...
