Today wasn't overly productive, but slightly more then previous days. Had a rather difficult day with Miss Attitude, which made it a bit more difficult to cope. Need some new coping skills, as I'm not reaching for a cigarette anymore. Sincerely debated buying a pack today, just to have on hand, but resisted the urge. All it will do is reset my progress and make things worse. But it was VERY tempting.
Nicotine patch is still causing cramping and redness. Slight nausea last night, but it past rather quickly. New aches and pains are appearing randomly, almost makes me think the tar was holding me together! Lungs still feel rather brittle and slightly burnt. Brain still isn't functioning as well.
Weight: 136lb...-.2 from last time. Current gain: 2lbs
