Need Something To Do

I quit smoking today. I figure if I can wear a patch in the hospital(s) for nine days then it was really dumb to light one up as soon as I was discharged. So Mr. Skittles picked up a box of patches for me on his way home from work yesterday and today was my quit day.

It's not easy. Anyone who has ever tried can tell you that. I need something to do with my hands. I could get another latch hook kit or maybe get a ring mandrel and make some jewelry.

Anything but overeat! I don't think I'll do that though. Overeat I mean. My stomach has shrunk and I eat way less than I used to. My appetite is lower, too. Good for my health. I'm going to weigh myself tomorrow and see if I've lost more.

Good luck at quitting!

Stick with it! Accept that you may have the desire for a smoke for a very long time, BUT also accept that you are no longer a smoker and you will not allow yourself to have one.

Reward yourself with something nice from the money you saved!

Not sure if cigarettes are expensive over there or not but here in UK they are around $10 for 20. I worked that out with Googles help! :)
