20 days of no smoking...still hard

Didn't smoke, still think about it but convince myself that I've gone this far and never want to go through the difficult times of the first week.

Yesterday was hard being with company. Mostly think about it driving alone or during high stress periods.

Hi Free3

Things will improve over time. Take you mind back to the first day or two things must be easyer than then. When you think about how long we smoked for its going to take a bit of time to recover. your doing great almost done the first month. well done.xxxx

Well done, as time goes on the bad days get fewer, but the good ones more plentiful :)

You are right that you don't want to have to go through the 1st week again, and try not to see quitting as a sacrifice, but rather as a situation gaining health wealth and control.

Cheers

Well done for getting this far-to be honest, the first week for me was 'not bad' then i seemed to go downhill for the next 3 weeks and had to fight against it-BUT now...feel great, no big craves, just the odd thoughts but overall not bad at all-so stick at it, it will get easier xx:D
