Well yesterday was easy, I ate a lot less than the first day, my appetite started to get back to normal. I even went out for dinner with some friends, was asked to drink, normally I'd say yes on autopilot, but this time I thought about it and sensibly said no as I wasn't feeling strong enough.
The feeling of wanting to smoke didn't even cross my mind for the whole day, I was really tired from the time I woke up til the time I went to bed but slept really well because of it and has to be the first night in ages I've been in bed before 1am.
Today, I woke up feeling tired, but woke up earlier than I have in ages too, not feeling hungry, not grouchy. Everything's getting easier by the minute.
I have 2 days, 11 hours smoke free under my belt, saved my lungs from 3 packs of cigarettes, given myself an extra 4 hours of freetime back into my life and saved myself $2.75 in the process.
Hopefully there are some people on Day 1 or Day 2 reading this like I was a couple of days ago, then you can see that however hard you find it, it does get easier as each hour goes by.
Some people tell you you shouldn't count the hours/days, better to just forget that you were ever a smoker. I disagree, I think you should count, and be proud of every little achievement you make in giving up. When you don't need it anymore you will eventually learn to forget the counting all by yourself.
I've been using a freeware program for the computer which just tells you all the information I write down in my emails, time since giving up, cigarettes not smoked and money saved, without having to work it all out every few minutes.

Someone was asking about a hypnosis cd too, I can recommend Susuan Hepburn: Stop Smoking In One Hour, it works if you want it too.
Now I don't have smoking to worry about anymore, need to start working on the 5kg I put on since Day 1 haha, it was well worth it though.
