I have not put a Newport to my lips in exactly one week.
Monday the 10th, I smoked my last full cigarette.
Tuesday the 11th I started taking two puffs at a time when DH would be smoking.
Friday the 14th, I woke up and said stop BSing around and just stop smoking.
I have not had one since. No lozenges, no patches, no nicotine gum, just regular gum. My biggest trigger moment is when I get off of work and get into the car. DH used to have a cigarette lit and waiting for me.
That's the positve.
The negative. I can't stop eating!!!!! I can't gain weight, even though I am going to have WLS, I can't gain weight right now.
I am thinking once I get the big urges under control then perhaps the eating will stop.
Thank you all for the encouraging words, and I have to say Stephanie, cold turkey is working so much better than lozenges.
Jodi, I am ready for my WLS journey. I am so so so ready. I hate that I have to wait so long for my next appointment, but should be glad that I have plenty of time to say I quit smoking and I am serious this time around. I know it's going to be hard, and I don't expect it to be a magical cure, but a tool and nothing more.
UGH I just want to wake up and it be the last week in January already.
