I tortured myself "cutting back". I thought I was in mild withdrawal and the best it could get, so ween 'til it stopped hurting, well pfft! Turns out that was moderate withdrawal and I wasn't making any progress at all! A week of free, pointless withdrawal. It stopped being such a HUGE struggle once I swore I would never smoke again.
And since the woman's days cramps are over and the withdrawals feel much like my pills, I went easy on the opiates today too ;)
I put no anxiety, because I always have a little. Today was pretty manageable. I did cry in Walmart though so I put depression loool.
My name is Erin, and I am a nicotine addict.
I have stopped nicotine for 12 hours, 32 minutes and 24 seconds (0 days).
I've saved 1 hour and 44 minutes of my life.
