I've made it to Day 9 without smoking and I've also been off the patches for two days.
The last two days have been pretty dark. Quitting smoking is hard enough but I've been fighting a throat infection as well and have been feeling really run down and tired. All of this has led me to feel quite depressed for the last couple of days. I'm starting to feel a little better now though, and am looking forward (!) to a busy day in work tomorrow.
It's been nine days so there's no going back now. I just need to learn how to live without 'em from now on.
