My chest hurts and I’ve been coughing a lot. You know, I always thought I didn’t smoke that much but this withdrawal is rather unpleasant â€” I can’t imagine what it would be like if I was a heavy smoker.
But â€” from what I’m reading â€” the worst is almost over. I should feel a lot better in a day or two. Mind you, I probably will get a cold because my immune system is so busy healing my body.
I don’t know, it’s a bit early to think about being a non-smoker. It’s only been a few days. But truthfully I have never felt this strongly about quitting.
I don’t feel proud of myself yet. Instead the strongest emotion I have now is being seriously pissed off that my chest hurts â€” that’s the irritability I was promised.
I’m going to keep trying my best. And if I’m a bit bitchy when I see you â€” I am sorry. I am trying my best.
Now @*&^~ off and leave me alone.
I wasn’t too crabby was I? The drinking helped.
