omg four weeks!

Yes folks its now day 28-- and I don't even fancy a fag any more. I'm not gonna lie and say I don't get craves. Last sat was the worst ever. Went out for a meal to celebrate daughters bday onthurs (she has to have 5 teeth out for her permanent braces this friday so we celebrated her bdy a few days earlier.) Anyway all was going well until the guy on the next table decided to get up and go out for a fag. Unfortunaely our ta ble and his were near the window and his wife/gf pulled back the curtains to try and 'talk' to him outside while he was having a cig. Talk about torture!!! I'd managed really well up to this point cos of the ban . But this was just 'rubbing salt into the wounds' I got through it with lotsa deep breathing and an extra glug of vino. ;)But it was close. I think what got me through was knowing that Ok it would be ace for 5mins or so but then i would want another and another and lots more and I'd only want to quit again. I don't know what anyone else thinks but I think that once you've tasted smoke free life you can never be a 'happy'smoker again.

Upshot is I'm still here people and I'm determined never to smoke again!http://img246.imageshack.us/img246/8399/thumbsup4kk.gif

    That's great. Four weeks is a big achievement.

    The dinner experience you describe is so tough because it comes on ny surprise. I think your right though. Once you quit if you go back it will feel great for a minuite but then it will be even worse becasue you know how much better life is without. Best luck ... and my sympathy to your daughter... desntis & orthodonture youch
