When do the nic fits stop?
« on: April 23, 2007, 08:28:02 PM »

Okay, I've almost gone 7 days without a cigarette.  I was smoking close to a half pack a day.  The first 4 days were rough, but then it calmed down.  Now it's kicking back up.  Not horrible but extremely present.  I was nicin' out all day at work.  So when does this end???  Tell me I can see the light at the end of the tunnell.

ow ow ow.

Cold turkey baby!!  I guess I'm a masochist, but I don't want to forget how much this hurts.

Are you feeling better now. I noticed that the cravings actually don't last long, but damn they're awful.

They're more low grade now.  Not the sort of "I'm going to effin' flip out!!!" withdrawl that happened during the first few days.  Work kicks 'em up.  It's easier when I can relax.  Last night I didn't necessarily need a cigarette but I was laying in bed fantasizing about having one.  How it would feel!  The smoke bathing my lungs a blowing out while my body just cried and thanked me for smoking.  So so soooo sad. 

I keep looking at all the middle aged out of shape people walking around the city smoking, and I just keep thinking, "NOOOOO!!! NOT MEEEEEE!!!!! I WON'T LET IT HAPPEN!!!!!!"

And aside from the nic fits.  I do feel better physically.  So I'm trying to stay FOCUSED. Argh.

I was told having an ashtray full of cold consumed cigs helps. Want mine? It's really nasty.

Actually, just the memory helps quite well.  So many nights I think that was my sole goal...fill up the ashtray and finish the six pack...forget about my problems until tomorrow.  At the end of the night I'd just wonder how I did it! I'd really like nothing more, but I just can't do it anymore.  I haven't smoked inside for six months so what's the point anyway if I have to go outside.

Thanks Milker.  I'll bug you tomorrow about 9am.

Still looking for thoughts on how long this crap lasts.

otherplaces, in my experience quitting THREE times I'd say the cravings come and go over the first 6 months are so.  You'll still get them from time to time after that of course, but much much less.

So I get to endure this everyday for six months or so?  It must lessen to something that feels pretty manageable at some point.

thanks,
brian

yes, more or less, especially if you go cold turkey. I've been there. But I didn't have "Milker" to call when I had those cravings. Call anytime.

Thanks Milker. 

It's pretty weird. I'm at zero right now. No craving.  I'm sure it'll hit as soon as I walk into work tomorrow.  Life is so damn fun.

Other, if I only smoked a half a pack a day I could do it cold turkey, but I smoke a little more than that. Good luck on quitting.
