11 days down ...

These are common detox symptoms and are related to changing body chemistry/hormone shifts, as well as toxins, etc, leaving the body through all soft tissue. Quitting smoking puts extra stress on you body's nervous system. A natural response to this kind of stress can be things like acne and cold sores. This detox process can also inflame, even infect, all soft tissue.

Yes, I realize my skin is perfectly fine but I have flashbacks to my 14-year-old self every time a pimple or two pops up.

But it feels just a little better knowing even my skin misses cigarettes.

    m, you're doing great with the no smoking thing. i think i told you already, but my roommate went from two packs per day to none...and she's been smoke-free for a month now. so, it is possible.

    i have dreams about cigerettes - i feel so guilty by the end of the dream that I can't even enjoy smoking in my sleep!

    thanks for the support!

    I love that you can share! It's not fun when the new girl steals your old boy friend! (male friend?)

    We'll have to make our own date/girls night sometime to make him jealous

    M-LOL. Can I start picking out his clothes for our dates, too? ;) No more cardinals stuff....

    Dancepad and crocheting? With liquor....

    And yes, Sare, you can come....but leave your friend Jack at home.

    oh, no. jack isn't even allowed at my house...jack and i are not on speaking terms for at least another couple months.
    and ddr and crocheting sounds like quite possibly the greatest time ever. i just started on a new scarf to match one of my poofy vests. yay!!

    I only know hot to knit - someone else is in charge of chrocheting, but I agree that Jack should have to stay at home - unless Sara wears her poofy vest (huh??) and then we'll all need Jack and his friends so poofy vest makes it through the night in one piece

    I'll teach you to crochet if you teach me to knit!

    Apparently we need poofy vests? ;)

    It's Xmas tree decorating night....yay!
