Thanks for the tips lady! It will get easier every single day! I just know it! Googling tracheotomy really does help. A tube sticking out of your neck is just not cute, sexy, or fashionable in any way!
Thanks for asking Bud! It’s going well. As in I’m still not smoking. It’s definitely hard but I never thought it’d be easy.

Hey guys! Just wanted to update you (for my own good :) )
Yesterday was NOT THAT BAD!!!!!! I usually have a very very hard time during the first day just because it’s more the emotional response that makes me not want to quit, and the wellbutrin IS helping! And so is the nicotine gum. I usually wait until I feel like smoking a cigarette would be great and then I chew a piece of gum… craving gone!
Here’s what livestrong.com says about what my day today will be like:
Because the nicotine in your cigarettes has been slower leaving your body, you didn’t feel many physical symptoms on your first cigarette-free day. You may have thought that quitting wouldn’t be so hard after all and you went to bed feeling relatively good.
You may have had some trouble staying asleep during the first night after you smoked your final cigarette. According to the Lung Association of Saskatchewan, the drug nicotine has an effect on your brain wave functions. Your sleep patterns may begin to change and you could experience vivid dreams when you do sleep.
The psychological symptoms you may feel on this second day include mood swings and outbursts of anger. Admit to feeling angry, but try not to lose your temper. If you do, you’ll begin to feel increased cravings for a cigarette. Instead, express yourself regarding the situation that is inciting your anger. While you’re having these feelings, breathe deeply or go for a walk if you can.
You may begin to feel depressed or have feelings of despair. This is normal. Find someone to talk with who can help you see that you’re doing something good for your health.
You may begin to experience dizziness. Additional oxygen is now getting to your brain, which is making you feel dizzy. Try to go for a walk with someone, get outside and experience the fresh air and begin to change your positions slowly until this effect goes away. When you first quit smoking, you may begin to experience fatigue. The nicotine in cigarettes stimulated your brain and body. Begin exercising moderately on the morning after quitting smoking, drink plenty of water and don’t push yourself.
You may experience a sore throat and cold-like symptoms. Your body is physically purging itself of the poisons in cigarettes. Drink plenty of water and suck throat lozenges to help relieve the worst of your symptoms.
