The main update that happened during week five is that I decided to quit smoking, since it was the 1st week of the new year, and I wanted to start new.
It was a very horrible experience to be honest, as my body ached, I suffered enough headaches and lack of concentration, especially in the 2nd and 3rd days. I was out of energy, I barely could teach my classes, I had problems listening to 2 people talking at the same time, or more funny, I might be talking to someone and ask about someone else while the other person is actually standing next to me but I couldn’t see them!
Then life saved me when it suddenly decided to snow and everything closed in Amman, and no body went to work, and my body got a break from everything…
Tomorrow, Saturday the 18th of January, will be day no. 14 without smoking, I’m really proud of myself to quit, and I feel prouder when I reject a cigarette and say “I don’t smoke” , because it always seems hard to do so, and smokers in general are really attached to their cigarettes, nicotine is highly addictive. If you are not a smoker, please don’t start, since recently I couldn’t live with the guilt of smoking, thinking all the time how I’m ruining my own body.
To those who are trying to quit, just prepare yourself mentally, I told myself I’m going to quit for a whole year, almost everyday, then i managed to do it.
