Sir Norris: still Not Smoking.

day one - day two - day three - day four

First off, thanks to those of you who've sent messages of help and/or support. It's much appreciated. According to the leaflet I have here, my body should be almost completely clear of nicotine very soon. Today and tomorrow, however, are apparently the worst days for withdrawal symptoms; so that's something to look forward to. I have also developed a cough, which is apparently due to my lungs clearing out mucus and debris.

On the plus side, I have already noticed some good effects. I certainly felt better getting up this morning and although the cravings are getting stronger, they seem to be getting less frequent. All in all, I seem more positive today than yesterday. I have drunk three cups of coffee with three sugars in each, though.

So, I should probably slow down the daylogging from now on, but it has to be said that it really has helped. From time to time, my mind has begun to convince me that I don't really want to give up after all, but the fact that I have logged it so much makes me think that I can't give in now. If I hadn't daylogged this today, it'd look like I'd failed to not smoke for more than two days and that is a bit crap really.

So I'll keep daylogging but only on important days. One week of not smoking, two weeks, a month, etc - if I ever get that far. If anyone notices I'm missing one of these, send me a /msg - ask if I've just forgotten, or if there's another reason...

So there's another hurdle over with. No-one (except the college nurse and, or course, the denizens of the nodegel) knew that I'd taken up not smoking. Just now, however, a friend asked me to pop out for a traditional quick fag. And I did go. But I didn't smoke. So it's a bit more out in the open.

The whole experience did bring on a massive craving for a cigarette, though. Plunging myself into work and noding today has more-or-less completely taken my mind off it all untill now. And I did find myself standing in the smoking shelter inhaling rather deeply.
