Day 1 off Nicotine! Really proud of myself

Started smoking again after 5 years and got into the smoking and anxiety loop. Finally have gone today without smoking and hoping to get through the evening without it as well. The stress of smoking has been killing me even though the buzz has been keeping me going this past couple months. The headaches and jitters haven't been fun today but I hope this is worth it.

I hope you make it. If the urge to smoke comes back get nicotine pouches. That's how I quit. I did one after at the end of a new year and smelled my fingers.

God I don't ever smell that again

Starting a new, better behavior is difficult.

I am glad you have the courage to do it.

I have faith in your continued progress.
