What was I saying again?

Since I stopped smoking 38 hours ago I have become very absent minded  and a bit scatter brained because of the lack of nicotine. It is not that I actively miss the nicotine, or crave it, but it seems to be taking my brain some time to get used to functioning without it. It is a very funny experience because I am usually so focused and on the ball and now I am more like I was when I was a kid when I was daydreaming a lot and forgetful and oblivious of time passing.

I am sure that I will get over this in a couple of days, at least, I am planning on it. I don't want to stay like this forever because it is a bit of a bother. I don't feel that I can gather my thoughts together well enough to have a decent conversation. The hypno-therapist had told me that there would be some adjustment of the chemicals in my brain but I did not know what to expect. 

Our session went very well and without going into too many details, I can tell you that the exercises that I learned are very helpful and that I apply them a lot any time of the day I feel like because they are easy and quick to do and they really help whenever I feel a liitle stress.  They are called Thought Field Therapy and really work for me.

The hypno-therapy also went well but I will not say anything about that except to say that it helped me a lot. This experience is too personal and, I am sure, different for everybody. It is not something scary that happens to you and you do remember everything that happens and nothing will happen that you do not want to. It is a perfectly alright process. 

You would not believe how long it has taken me to write this little bit of text. Now I remember why I did not get things done in school on time. 

I better quit this post but at least you are all up to date.

I lost my ability to read when I quit and could not figure out what a calculator did.
It was all restored in time. Made me realize what a powerful drug nicotine was.
Proud of you girl, hang in.

Hope this is the way that you'll manage to give up.
You are one determined lady and I wish you all the best with it.
