Day 5 of my Journey to Quit Smoking 💚
Day 5: September 23rd, 2018
I woke up at 8:30 a.m. I got some really good sleep last night, thanks Good Day Chocolates!
So far, cigarettes #1-3 were cravings (pain + coffee). I woke up in a little pain, I feel like a uti is coming on. I know, TMI, but it’s probably due to the fact that I have drank about 6 oz. of Dr. Pepper each day for the last 3 or 4 days. I usually don’t drink soda pop this often, but I’ve been craving them. It probably has something to do with nicotine withdrawals? Who knows. I’m writing this info down in my journal. I have to get ready for church, but I’ll get back on here later.
4:50 p.m. I just woke up from a delightful nap. It was quite refreshing and I had the most amazing dream. I do not know who any of the people were, but it would make a fascinating book series. I would most definitely read them!
Anyway, lol, we got home from church around 12:20 p.m., ate lunch, I smoked a couple of cigarettes (both cravings, from lunch), I talked on the phone a bit, and then I laid down around 2:30 p.m. for a nap. Now I’m smoking cigarette #6 while drinking a cup of coffee to help me wake up. I don’t really know if this one is a craving or an “I need to wake up” cigarette.
Wow! I’ve only smoked 6 cigarette so far today! That’s quite an accomplishment! Everyday needs to be Sunday! Wouldn’t that be lovely? Church from 9:45 a.m. until noon, a satisfying lunch at home (or dinner at family’s house), nap time, quiet supper at home, and back to bed early to prepare for it all again. That would be the perfect world, if you ask me. Anyhow, speaking of supper, I probably need to figure out what I’ll be cooking! Haha. I’ll talk to y’all later.
10:28 p.m. Coffee is the enemy. Haha. Seriously though. I smoke more when I drink coffee. I drank a cup this morning + one cup after my nap + one cup after supper. I have now smoked 14 cigarettes. That’s not bad, I know, but I am still beating myself up. Anyway, tomorrow is a new day, so I will just keep on trying to smoke less and less! I hope y’all have a good night! I think I’ll get off of here, make my video + post it, and do my bible study.
