I'm new here but have quit those nasty smokes for over a year now. I wish I had found somewhere like this in the beginning of my quit but never mind I'm here now.
The first two weeks were absolute torture and one of the hardest things mentally for me that I've ever done. In the beginning I had a goal of 2 weeks at a time and every time I'd get to that goal, I'd reward myself with anything from a packet of chewing gum to a new item of clothing
These days I'm free of the crave but not the psychological side of it. I don't often come under stress but when I do this is the only time I think I actually CRAVE nicotine. I smoked for so long I realize that it's going to take much longer for me to overcome this.
I will succeed
