Hi again, I love these discussions! leslleyaf, I hear you about wanting to sleep it off. I get those feelings too, that's why I'm quitting a week before my xmas vacation ends, so I can have time to nap during the day, and not perform a critical error at work, lol!! The masks don't affect my breathing, but going outside for yard duties makes me blind because of foggy glasses, lol! And wet masks from condensation suck! Keep going girl, maybe lie on the couch for a bit with one eye open, lol. Toddler days are hard and full on, so nap when they nap.
Quitfirend those are great coping strategies, thanks for bringing it up! Yes on the smell! I just picked up a few items and included was a scented candle, nail files (the only time ever I do this is when I quit, lol), my dear old dog just died and I miss dog walks, but getting outside is critical to my mental health during COVID. I have feelers out to adopt another dog in a few months. There's this thing called Go Noodle on youtube for energy breaks for students, and I'm going to have to do these at home, because they work!! I'm so proud of you, Quitfriend, you're really rocking it, and I admire how you used nicotine gum to manage your out of the blue cravings, doing anything but smoke!
I just logged on to My Quit Coach to start weaning from 25 to 18 cigarettes a day, then lower every day for 1 week. It's easy so far, but tomorrow I cut down another 4, etc..
Thinking of you all!
