I was dreading this day because I help hubby at a market and the customers can be really mean at times. Well today I got through it with flying colours, no stress or tears:). I'm still having trouble with what Jim suggested PND, I have just finished reading the link he pm'd me and I hope I have found the solution, I have suffered on and off for years with acid reflux. I in the past took Ranitidine on a regular basis but stopped taking it for about a year as the acid didn't seem to bother me anymore. I'm wondering if this is what is the cause of the feeling of phlegm stuck in my throat so I will start to take the Ranitidine again and cut out coffee and see if there is any improvement. Apart from that I'm doing really well with the cravings, I just think back to Monday night and how I thought I was going to have a heart attack and that's enough to keep me from smoking again:).
