Quitting Smoking Timeline – Day Seventeen

520 light cigarette packs, one menthol and one...Image via Wikipedia

It has been a crazy couple of days. I think I’m having a far more violent reaction to the 14mg then I did to the 21mg. I was ridiculously sick yesterday, so hence why no blog post. Maybe I should move to every other day from now on, let me know what you folks think.

The cramping is getting worse at time on the nicotine patch progresses. Today my entire left arm ached, from really painful last night to downright painful all day today. In fact its still cramping up as I type this, and I do not currently have a patch on. Though I did just remove it.

I’ve thrown out that pack of cigarettes that I bought, with no immediate plans of buying another one. Maybe I should test run another day off the patch, and see how it goes. At least it would be coming off of a lower dose this time. I do have an appointment with my doctor May 4th, so if all else fails I will be speaking to him about it. Being almost incapacitated isn’t exactly reinforcing my desire to quit.

16 days, 21 hours, 36 minutes and 27 seconds smoke free.
338 cigarettes not smoked.

$104.00 and 2 days, 13 hours of your life saved.
