How nicotine withdrawal affected me
I do good for awhile and then an overwhelming feeling to want a cigarette comes, my stomach feels like someone punched it and I get very edgy. If I smell one, it actually makes me sick, so that lets me know that it is all in my head. I let the tide sweep by and then I am fine for a couple of hours. The worst is first thing in the morning with coffee, and then after dinner.
How I managed nicotine withdrawal symptoms
I have quit smoking for 9 days now and still have about 3 times a day when withdrawal comes. I count to 15 and the feeling slowly goes away. It seems to just creep up on me when I least expect it. When I am distracted with working nicotine withdrawal is almost non-existent. I am going to try and repeat a verse from my favorite book and see if that makes the transition easier.
