I made it! I'm in month 2. I had one relapse in month 1 which I took very seriously, had a good long think about quitting v smoking and decided that I'd come so far it would be silly to go back to smoking.
So I'm here in month 2. And it's getting easier. Cravings are less frequent and not as long in duration. I no longer feel the need to eat everything I can lay my hands on (although my appetite is still increased on what it used to be). I still do deep breathing and sometimes have my straw to suck on/chew (plain plastic drinking straw).
I haven't yet noticed any extra benefits than I did in week 1, I still wake up each day with a blocked nose and sore throat, my lungs aren't suddenly cleared, but little by little they're getting there. Small steps.
Well, better get dressed and go into work. Take care all and have a great day.
