At this point, I'm over 9 hours in to quitting "cold turkey."
I think I am doing pretty good. Yesterday, after the first 3 hours, I was dumpster-diving for those last two pouches I had thrown away. Then I re-committed, but 7 hours later I was at the c-store for a new can.
Today, despite some difficult circumstances, I am staying committed. It's been helping to think that, the longer I go, the easier it will be. The worst is already behind me, and I never have to live through that again as long as I stay committed.
From previous experience I know that day 2 will be the worst for cravings, but bad cravings are nothing compared to the shame & guilt that I will be free from.
Key Takeaway: It only gets better from here.
