Withdrawl was not nearly as bad on this quit due to the education from Joel and the rest at this site, I was able to keep my blood sugar level by eating more than once a day and drinking juice etc.
Day 1, after butting out the last one at 630 am, first crave 15 min later , second 10 min after that head ach started, took advil, eat, crave, ignore, head ach back. Ears starting to buzz as brain yelled for nicotine, ignored craves and buzzing, drank water, drank strong coffee to ease the screach in my brain for a fix.
Read, read, read this site, determined was not giving up even it killed me. It didn't.
Day 2, got up 6 am crave, ignored, eat, drink coffee, ignore crave, wife got on nerves, crave, ignore, on way to work thought to self, the only way you have been putting up with wife for 24 years was because you had nicotine to calm you down, you are either gonna have to smoke, or divorce (junkie thinking for sure) I love wife. Ignore craves junkie thinking all day, read read read this site, head ach not as bad, buzzing letting up, not as much screaching in the brain for a fix, much easier to ignore.
Day three slightly dull headach, hard to concentrate on details for work, just keep on ignoring the crave,
days 5-7 getting easier to think, no head ach, sleeping like a log, waking up feeling good, not fogged needing the fix, eating like I was 21 again, feeling lots better.
Second week, occasional 20 second crave, not strong, getting on with work, life, reading and supporting others on site as time allows.
Third and consecutive weeks, easier and easier, getting on with life, stopping by site occasionally to catch an article or send some encouragement.
