hi im new to this forum
thought id join to hopefully see and talk to people who are going through the same thing as me.
i started smoking when i was about 14 and am now 24 ... so about 10 ish years.
im on zyban and i don't think it's really "working" although the cravings are not TOO bad.
actually the time now is 11:03pm ... ive just completed day 1 and am now on day two. im going to sleep soon so when i wake up ill be half way through day 2
i really hope day 2 is easier than day one.
i almost relapsed and had one while i was waiting for my bus at the terminal.
i find that it's not easy. you just have to do something else when wanting one and it's so easy to find a distraction, but then while distracted, concentration is difficult because all you think about is I WANT A SMOKE
the main reasons for me giving it up is because my friends and family think i smell funny after having one...
it is already affecting my breathing...
and my mom best friend died 2005 from lung cancer, bowel, ovarian, and bone. smoking destroyed her.
im feeling cravings again
how long is it till you are smoke free and feeling better to NOT crave so much and feel the need for one
i hope it passes.
