some people use weightlifting to take their mind off stress. i wish i could do that, i find that if i have stuff on my mind i cant focus on lifting the weights.

Right, I know what you mean - not to mention aches and pains and possible strains one might encounter along the way. Will settle for walking and probably eventually power walking, esp. now that the weather's good (tons of people jogging in my area w/ dogs, strollers etc, wondering if they're all stressed out or just hopefully want to get (or stay) in shape).

Can't jog anymore, too hard on the knees. I ride my bicycle and the dog on a leash at the same time. Works for me!

ohh boy what a bad day, and to think your thru the hurdle with this drug. ITs just plain terrible. Made it to the gym, made it over to see mom and dad. Then when I left I just felt those waves of sickness. Upset stomach, bad dryed out sinuses, aches and pains and gas. And the worst is this brain fog. Its plain terrible. I cant wait for this crap to end. I did look up how long this crap can go on and it said up to two weeks!!! However I did not smoke. I did chew a nicotene gum to make this bad feeling go away, first one in two days.

thanks t, and honeycrips and everybody. You guys are great. Letting me moan and complain and make this log on the first week on quitting. Very nice of you all.


ONE MORE QUESTION: why stay away from Livingston Mall???? Too much stress??

I made it thru that hell this afternoon. I cant believe it either. Ohh tommorrow has got to be better.

you know what funny , I looked up did a search and said feel lousy after quitting smoking. Well some site came up and people who smoked for along period of time all complained that even after 6 months they felt crappy. Same symptoms as me however except one, I cant eat so I am losing weight. They all gained weight. However aches, pains, cough, sore throat, bloating and heartburn and headaches. I guess when you smoke for along time and I mean long time me 27 years your gonna suffer for along time too. I am not going to let this beat me, I am going try and be normal. Maybe its psychological??

It will be, every day you'll feel better, you'll see. I never smoked but it is a tough addiction to beat but it sounds like you're doing great, just keep busy when you can and when you're tired, take a snooze. This nice weather can serve as a good distraction.

On another thread, there was a lot of mention about Livingston Mall and crime (happens at every mall but Livingston Mall was specifically mentioned). Anyway, I know you like to shop - which can be a good distraction - just be careful and lock your car, hide your valuables etc

For example, chest pains, sour throat , tons of weird aches and pains, cough, tightness in chest, weird stomach aches, heartburn and headache. SOund like fun huh, the good news is it comes in waves , its managable, and you wont gain weight yet at the point because you feel to crappy to eat.

Listen I would not worry about a few lbs of weight. Thats sort of crazy, I mean most people who gain weight smoking eventually take it off. I think 5 lbs is no big deal , look at your other option LUNG CANCER, most smokers 87percent GET ALL THE CASES OF LUNG CANCER. So listen dont eat like a slob, watch the scale , quit smoking and work out. You will be fine. If I can do it, anyone can.

If you can get access to a pool, try doing some laps. It's like a good cardio workout and yoga at the same time. Plus there is something really soothing abut being in the water. I am pulling for you. It sounds like you are doing awesome. Keep it up!
