It is great that you joined our community. Welcome! And congratulations on making the decision to quit.
Not One Puff Ever is my motto. Every one of us has to live by that motto, because one puff will lead us right back to where we started, which is a full blown addict. And who wants that?
I can understand that you are emotional. When we don't get the chemicals we are used to getting, it does something to both our bodies and our minds. Quitting challenges us in so many ways, which is why I maintain that people who quit are way stronger than they give themselves credit for.
It sounds like you are doing all of the right things to make your quit successful. The most important thing is to put yourself first, even if that seems to go against the grain. It won't last forever, but it is necessary to get you through the worst of the quitting process. You are important, and right now you need to focus on yourself. One step at a time. And remember. It will get easier over time. You just have to get through the rough patch first.
Celebrate every victory, no matter how small. It all adds up and moves you closer to your goal. You can do this, lisads. Believe in yourself.
