30-Day Quitting Log! https://ift.tt/3a3G62f

Hello friends, yesterday I decided I was gonna completely quit vaping cold turkey. My goal here is to explain to you guys day by day how I feel and what I’ve been doing to help me stop. Honestly, this is more for me to read after everything and see how I did. lol. Anyways let me tell you a little about my self/addiction. 

Right now I’m 23 years old and am about to graduate from college. I’ve been vaping almost every day since I've been 18 (5 years). Over this past year, I’ve resized that there nothing positive/beneficial that’s gonna come out of this addiction and ultimately is gonna take years off my life. So for the past year after every weekend I've been telling myself I'm gonna quit and yesterday I FINALLY stopped. I’m super excited but at the same time very scared. I know this isn’t something you just decided to do and succeed at. I know it’s gonna require a lot of willpower and self-control so we will just see what happens. On another side note, my girlfriend for the past 3 years is also a vaper who is deciding not to stop just yet so this might make things a little bit harder. 

For this next section, I will be doing a 30-day log of how I feel and what I’m doing to keep myself busy and distracted from nicotine. Feel free to comment on whatever you, please…  

DAY 2: 09 February 2021

Exact Quit time 08 February 1:00 AM

Hi, guys since I didn’t start on day one ill talk about it for today’s entry. Yesterday was a little bit easier than I anticipated. Yeah, I obviously wanted to hit my vape but it wasn’t as hard as I thought it was gonna be to control myself. The times I found I wanted it most was right after lunch and dinner. When I felt the urge the most I decided to do something else than what I was doing at the time, to try and take my mind away from it. Which somewhat worked. The one thing I noticed was right around 8 PM I was VERY tired and ended up falling asleep right around 9 PM. Which I haven’t done in years. Anyways I woke up this morning around 9 AM so I basically got 12 hours of sleep which also I haven’t done in years lol. Anyways, one weird thing I noticed was that I completely remembered my dream. Probably the clearest dream I’ve ever had. Not sure if it was from nicotine withdrawal but it was definitely abnormal to me. After I decided to get my day started I noticed I was a lot more hungry than usual so I made a breakfast sandwich. (I can’t remember the last time I’ve eaten breakfast.) Now it’s right around 2 PM and I’m kinda hungry again but I know it’s the nicotine withdraws so I’m trying to hold off as long as I can.

Somethings I’ve noticed after 36 hours:

  1. Feel tired sometimes dizzy
  2. Increased appetite 
  3. Episodes of nicotine cravings
  4. Fewer trips to the bathroom lol 
  5. Some kind of Restlessness feeling
  6. Difficult to fully concentrate.

These withdrawal symptoms I expect to get worse over the next couple of days and I am trying to prepare myself for that. One thing that has helped me tremendously is to keep your mind busy. Keeping my mind busy allows me to put my focus somewhere else and helps me to not think about nicotine as much. That being said I have realized it is necessary to somewhat switch up your daily routine so you can avoid some of the activities that trigger nicotine consumption. 

This will be a long 30-day thread for me and I will keep you guys updated every day if not more than once a day. Thank you guys for reading and hopefully, this will result in helping people with the same addiction as myself! Feel free to comment or message me!
