I'm really grateful for all the posts I've been reading on this forum over the last three days. Had I not been reading them I'm sure I would have already talked myself into having one fateful little nicotine fix to keep me going.
I'm now on day seven - cold turkey style. I thought I would have been chewing the carpet before now but really it has been quite bearable. I feel pretty confident that I can make it. Right now it feels as if I will probably have to remain vigilant for some time to come - keep reminding myself of how awful smoking was and how much better I'm starting to feel without it.
