Took a sleeping pill last night and had a good sleep, then decided to stay in bed and sleep some more so feeling a bit better today. Last night I dreamt that I smoked a vegan cigarette whatever the heck that is hahahaha. It tasted like crap, like smoking dried fruit hahaha. Weird dreams are entertaining at least!

Hi Vix1976,
 
The first month of my quit, I could fall asleep but woke up 2 to 3 times a night.  I was perpetually tired.  So I started napping whenever I could, and it really helped.  After that first month, I started sleeping normally again which made it so much easier to keep my quit.
 
Anyway, I hope you feel better soon.

Ya I used to have horrible insomnia but seem to be past that. But two nights in a row snuck up on me. The first night I think it was cause I forgot to take my champix and took it later at night. Seems to give me restless legs sometimes. Managed a small nap and just relaxing now. Oh well I'll survive, hoping this cold goes away, that's number 1 right now. Well except for keeping my quit 😊

Hopefully you got a nap in and you enjoy your sushi and movie.  I've had a number of sleepless days over the time with my quit and they usually happen the nights before a medical appointment, though I have randomly had them.

Hi Vix1976,


Being sleep deprived sure does impact how you feel. I 'm sorry you're not feeling so good today. It seems like this week has been a bit up and down. Hopefully that nap will make you feel refreshed and better. Everyone's system is so unique in how it reacts to this change and champix, but it will recover and heal. Soon you will be feeling that too! 

I think it a pretty strong sign that in your dream you were feeling guilty about smoking. Even your subconscious is determined to be a nonsmoker!

Still heading out for sushi tonight? Whatever your plans for tonight and this weekend, I hope you feel proud of yourself. Week one is behind you!

Way to go Vix!

Lillian

Not feeling great again today and haven't been sleeping well the last couple of nights so kinda grumpy. Was dreaming about smoking last night and lying about it and feeling guilty about it. Just reinforces why I don't need it in my life anymore! Gonna try and nap today and hopefully feel better for the weekend as I'm heading out of town! Wishing everyone a great smoke free day!!

Thanks again cheerleaders treepeo and smobered, I was feeling quite a bit better by tonight and made it out for a walk which was nice. Going out for sushi tomorrow night with my honey and maybe a movie! Nice little date night which is always good. Lucky guy gets a bonus from my quit too as I'm buying with the money I've saved lol! Had a doc appt about test results today and got all worked up about it (for nothing) and had a craving but didn't even remotely think about quitting my quit I've now got 8 days in woohoo so happy and so proud!

Hi Vix1976,
 
You made it through your first week.  Yippee!!!  That is a huge accomplishment, and you should feel so proud of yourself.  
 
Once you are feeling better, try to get out there and do something fun.  You really deserve a treat!

Oh yay I didn't even notice that my quit meter was fixed and finally showing up on my posts. One week under my belt it shows tonight. Technically not for another hour will it be exactly one week since my last smoke 😊. Not the way I wanted to celebrate but yes treepeo not smoking will help to kick this quicker! Also makes me not really want to smoke so there's the silver lining!

Hi Vix1976,
 
Hope you feel better soon, and certainly by the weekend.
 
You will probably recover faster now that you are not smoking.  I had a chest infection a while ago, and I knew it would have become way worse if I were still smoking.  Just another benefit of quitting! 
 
By the way, look at you go, Vix.  Day 6 - Woo Hoo!  Congrats!

Lmao treepeo. Love it!!!!! I'm feeling much better after a great workout tonight. I just need to get my stuff together during the day and quite being a bum. I know it makes me feel better but it can be so hard to get off the couch. I think I'll try to do late morning yoga. I love yoga and haven't practiced years. Good for the body and soul, an excellent distraction and nothing too hard to do in the morning as I hate morning workouts lol Thanks again treepeo and smober. You ladies are amazing and I am so grateful for your help!!
