Okay, my husband I quit smoking last Tuesday. I am not wearing a patch or anything. Today is so hard for some reason. Trying to figure it out, but I think my boss is just driving me crazy!!!! Big time craving right now!! Really do not want to start the habit again. Have been bike riding every day.....by the way, when's the last time you tried that...whew!!!

Husband quit too -- he is such a grouch!!!

It is hard enough quitting by yourself, but living with the one person who usually is so supportive when he's quitting too, now that's a challenge. I know he is struggling , as he is older and has smoked for longer and smoked more per day. But, he is such a grouch and has been biting my head off just out of the blue. At first I was handling it okay, but I guess now my emotions are all out of whack and he is starting to hurt my feelings. How do I ignore that without becoming cold?

Somebody call 911 --- i want a smoke!!!

Well it passed. Thank God!! I just jumped into my studying, my husband made me put a patch on and I got thru it. Unfortunately, I killed a pint of cookies and cream blue bell thru the process , oh and a few fritos!!! I'll have to jump over to another board shortly ;) Thank you so much! I don't know what I'd do without this board. My husband is quitting too, so he's not much help, he has to get thru his own cravings. I made it!!!!

Thanks guys, just had a lot of stress hit me at once. The company I have worked at for 11 years has decided to sell. My husband and I both work there, and we just happened to do some research on our own and found this out. No one else knows. So I've decided to get my real estate license, but that's hard to do when you work full time and have 2 kids. But I am determined to do it. I haven't worked on my course since I quit smoking and as soon as I sat down I started having this massive craving. Hard to concentrate when this is going on. But I have to get this done. Not to mention my boss is being a total ass.....

3 weeks down.....

Well, I've got 3 weeks down. Last quit I had I went 4 weeks, so I'm anxious to make it past that. It has been easy the last week. I haven't had cravings and the thoughts of smoking have decreased quite a bit. I can do this....I can be a non-smoker!!!!

Anybody else have heart fluttering ???

I'm 3 weeks down, and one time last week and all day yesterday, my heart is like a constant fluttering. It feels like it's beating out of my chest, but yet I can't really feel it. I know that doesn't make sense, but it feels like it's vibrating. I'm wondering if this is some sort of side effect from either a)not smoking or b) not drinking as many sodas or c) what is it???

I find myself having images of slamming someones head into my fist! and then having a smoke!! ha ha ha!! just kiddin!! that is a hilarious image. But, I am quite edgy and finding out what actually triggered my smoke breaks before and trying to figure out how to make it thru them one at a time.... Super Crab in Texas......
