Knocking the Fags on the Head – Pt 3
Ok, at 7am on Monday I will have officially been cigarette free for 2 weeks.Â Not bad going, but the end is still a little way away.
Just thought I’d update to say that I have passed the first major hurdle.Â I went out last night and got absolutely plastered.Â Many newly ex-smokers will tell you how hard it is to drink alcohol and not smoke.Â But, truthfully speaking, I can say that it was very very easy.Â I had a few times where I fancied a smoke, but they passed in seconds.Â Most of the time I didn’t even think about it or want one.
I feel very very successful.Â I woe up this morning with a splitting headache (pro-tip for younger drinkers: the hangovers get much worse as you get older – drink lots and lots of water when you get home from the pub.)Â But, on the other hand, my throat wasn’t raw and my mouth didn’t taste lie an outside toilet.Â So I think that that is a great win for me.
I think I’ll skip the third week of the stronger patches and jump straight onto the second stage patches.
I’m feeling good without feeling smug, so I’m still nice to be around. :w00t:
