Well here I am entering my fourth week and I'm pretty sure I am over the worst now. Week one was absolutely fine, week two was up and down (day 10 being the worst ever) and week three an absolute bitch - all I could see were cigarettes everywhere and couldn't stop thinking about them. I was trying to justify why I shouldn't just have one little cigarette when I wanted one. In the end I told myself that cigarettes were not banned, if I wanted a cigarette there was no-one to stop me and I was capable of walking to the shop and buying them and making that decision. Well, I don't know what has happened but entering the fourth week I feel like my brain has now finally accepted I am a non smoker and it feels good. My fitness levels are up and I don't smell of smoke (never realised how bad that was). Thanks for all the support on this forum. It really does help to log in and see how others are doing.
