so… im trying to quit smoking…. i think its going rather well
ive been smoking for 7 years. ive been smoking menthol, almost nothing but menthol. so not only am i struggling to deal with the mental “jonesing” - but my lungs are trying to heal all of the abrasions and it itches like hell.
so far, the only changes ive noticed are:
1) its a hell of a lot easier to piss me off, get me fired up about nearly anything. ive had a lot of problems with my temper in the past, and i get the feeling its going to be harder to keep my anger in check
2) im getting fatter… last time i was weighed i was over 300lbs. ive been eating a lot more. i can see more of my legs when i walk, so i actually feel like im losing weight, but im being told that i look like ive been gaining a lot of weight. my best friend, chels, warned me that my weight would definitely go up through the roof. that was based on her experience with her fiancee; i guess he ballooned up.
3) its even harder to focus on shit. i was diagnosed with ADD at a very young age. at the time, my mother thought it was something that i could learn to deal with, as opposed to living the rest of my life taking pills. so - my ADD has never been medicated.
i know it can be done as i know many people that have quit. mark my words - my name will be added to the list…
