Tomorrow is the 2 month anniversary of quitting smoking. In the past 2 months I have craved but have not smoked cigarettes at all. I am still doing this cold turkey.
I have had a few problems pop up since quitting. I now have acid reflux, which start about 2 weeks after quitting, and I’m trying to control this by not eating the things that are causing a flare up and using over the counter meds until I go to the doctor at the end of this month. I also have an embarrassing problem… excess gas. I’m trying to control that with over the counter meds until the end of the month too.
I’ve also been substituting food for cigarettes, which is not a good thing, and have gained several pounds. That is the next thing I am working on since I have 1 pair of jeans that I can wear now. I had 5 or 6 pair that I could wear before packing on the pounds.
I’m also dealing with my depression meds not working like they were and my psych doc added a new controlled med to the list… the generic for klonopin, which I take as I need it for stress and anxiety. I won’t take them too often because they make me very sleepy and I’m still sleepy into the next day. I won’t be getting addicted to them.
