How I Quit Smoking: Day 2

Thirty six hours. They say the first week is the hardest week. Non smokers have no idea how hard the first week is.

I'm already asking myself why I wanted to stop. That is when I'm restraining myself to keep from putting my fist through something.

Ever notice on television they make it look fairly simple. If you want to quit chew this gum, take this pill, join this program.

The worst part is the withdrawal symptoms. Nicotine is a drug. Weaning your body off of nicotine is no picnic. In fact I would rather have my toenails pulled one by one.

Symptoms at 36 hours: Difficulty focusing. Hot and cold chills. Shaking hands. Restlessness. Irritability. Making effigies of former bosses and torturing them. Punching out the next person who says 'You're doing the right thing. You'll get through this'.
