    hi everyone. My last smoke was on october 8th it’s now the 11th. Any one have advice on how to cope with symptoms? I have only slept for about 5 hours since the 9th. I slept for maybe 4.5 on the 9th and was only able to sleep for 1.5 on the 10th. I’ve been fighting a headache on and off since the 9th and I feel like crap. I’ve tried water and juice and avoiding triggers. I e been eating for often then normal. And keep getting too hot then too cold. Any advice/support (since I lack it at home) is appreciated. I really want to succeed this time.

    mommasgirl,

    Congrats on making it 3 days without a smoke! 

    You're going through some withdrawal right now, which includes the insomnia and the headaches. I remember around day 3 I started to get some wicked headaches and thought 'great on top of quitting and withdrawal now I've got a headache' but the headache is part of the withdrawal and it passes. 

    You will get hungry since your body is trying to heal, and also smoking is a meal suppressant so without smoking your body is signalling hunger.

    Take it one day at a time for now. Try to take some time to clean all your clothes to get rid of the smoke smell, toss out all your lighters, smokes, ashtrays, etc. I bet in the next day or so you will really start to notice the stale smoke smell on other smokers, I can pick off a smoker from about 10'0" away.
