So it’s 15 hours since my last cigarette. I’m here writing this, in order to let another craving pass me by, which seems kind of ironic really.
Allegedly, the cravings last between2 and 3 minutes, so woooahh, I should be feeling better already. So I will leave it there and just drop in some timeline info on positive effects of giving up, which I have collated to help me focus….
|20 minutes||Blood pressure and pulse return to normal|
|8 hours||Nicotine and carbon monoxide levels in blood reduce by half and oxygen levels return to normal|
|24 hours||Carbon monoxide eliminated from the body
Lungs start to clear out mucus and other smoking debris
|48 hours||No nicotine left in the body
Ability to taste and smell is greatly improved
|72 hours||Breathing becomes easier
Bronchial tubes begin to relax and energy levels increase
Blood sugar creation levels return to normal levels – you can lay off the fruit juice
