thanks to everyone for the lovely messages of support for yesterday (day 5). I am now almost on day 6 and still feel really great. I am using the gum which i feel is helping me and to be honest i actually am thinking of them less and less. Iv slept well for 2 nights now and i used to wake up every 2-3 hours for half a fag so its wonderful to sleep through thenight. no headaches now and although i still feel i have a bit of a bad taste in my mouth i can cope with that. can't believe im almost a week into being an ex smoker..its soooooooooooooo great to be free. Where are these mad climbing the walls cravings people warned me about??????? Are they to come or were these people waffling???? I feel so good and don't even want to put filthy dirty smoke into my lungs !!
