Day Four and still hanging in there!

Hi all and continued good luck!

I'm reaching the end of day ' now 96 hours and 5 mins since my last smoke.

It's been a bit easier than days 1 to 3 but still very tough. Every day seems to throw up some new stress trap that normally I'd deal with by smoking (or so it's been for the last 20 years since I was 15).

I'm just hoping that each passing day, things get a little bit easier and I feel a bit more "normal."

Giving up smoking is a little bit like escaping from death row. The escape attempt may be awfully tough, but you'd have to be mad to turn around and return to your cell. Each day I run from my cell get's me a little closer to freedom!

Hope everone else is hanging in there too. All we have to do each day is get through till tomorrow ;o)


1st serious quit attempt using the inhalator and odd bit of nicotine gum.
