Warning, the below text contains disheartening comments - if you're motivated to quit, best not to read down
Uggh, 30 hours now without touching a ciggarete (Though have used patches which keep falling off, and the ocassional gum) this is awful, second time I've tried to quit (been smoking 6 years now)
I've been trying to find sites that offer positive encouragement, i.e. "It'll all be over soon, you're doing a good thing" and almost every site I see says cravings can end in 2 weeks, but sometimes the cravings never end, and have seen testiments of people that have been smoke-free for 10 years and still get cravings.... How disheartening?
Seriously, 30 hours in (including sleep + NRT) and these cravings are really stressing me out, and then I see that the cravings could last for weeks or even months more? That makes me want to just start smoking right now.... The level of excercise I get is okay, I cycle every day for 8 miles and I scubadive, and I don't seem to have much trouble with that... 30-40 years of relative comfort before the problems start kicking in, or up to 10 years of cravings and stress for a few years of physical freedom??
This is horribly disheartening
