|Waking up coughing every morning (since I've quit, I haven't had that experience at all!|
|Sinus headaches - haven't had one since I've quit.
|People not sitting next to me because I smoke.|
|Choosing the seat closest to the door in restaurants.|
|Trying to juggle 3 packages and an umbrella in one hand, so I can hold my cigarette and smoke using the other hand.|
|Waiting for the next bus or train, so I can finish my cigarette first.|
|Not being able to breathe through my nose half the time - I still have allergies and some remaining 'gunk' to clean out, but at least I can breathe through it now.|
|Smelling like an ashtray.|
|Feeling like a social outcast.|
|Having to wash the yellow stuff off my walls, windows, etc.|
|Here's a little tidbit of info that may help you along with your quit - as you go longer and longer without a cigarette, not only do you feel better *physically*, but your self-esteem starts getting a real boost too. It really does feel good!|
|Before I quit, I really didn't think I would ever be able to do it. Once I made the decision to quit, each hour without a cigarette showed me that YES, I COULD do it, and it felt GOOD. Not just physically, but mentally as well.
There's something about realizing that I am actually DOING something that I never thought I'd ever be able to do, that REALLY makes me feel like I can do anything, and it's a GREAT feeling!
