Day 3

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Day three hasn't been too bad. I'm definitely feeling better. Much more energetic and breathing seems to have improved. I actually ran up the stairs this morning, and didn't find myself sucking wind afterward. I know this doesn't sound like much to the average, non-smoking person, but believe me. It's an accomplishment.

There are times(many times) today where I get a little attack of panic when the thought of having a cigarette crosses my mind. For example, I used to smoke any time I was sitting in front of the computer. I sat down just now to write this post and the thought that I'd enjoy a smoke right now crossed my mind. A brief attack of panic seized my chest when I remembered I didn't have any. Then, it passed. Just like that. I popped a piece of nicotine gum in for good measure, and here I am. Sitting at my computer without smoking a cigarette. Great strides have been made.

I don't think my husband believes that I'm going to quit for real this time. I've said it before, but I'm serious this time. It's a matter of life and death now. At least, in my mind it is anyway. I'm going to prove him wrong, even if he doesn't say so much in words. I'll show him....

All in all, day three is proving to be a success. Check the ticker out below. Just the fact that I've saved over $25 already is something to celebrate! Can you believe I used to spend at the very least $180 a month on my habit? I know it was more than that, but that's just an estimate. I never really kept track of how much I smoked. I know it was a lot.

Isn't that something.....$25 already!
