Ok, before I start this post properly, I want to say thanks to everyone for their concern over the weekend, with the PM's and wall posts I got. I won't say who you were and embarrass you all, but it's nice to know I'm missed around here sometimes
You will notice that this becomes a regular thing, basically I don't do the internet at weekends. I make my living designing and coding websites, so unless there is a very good reason, I keep away from it at weekends. That's not to say I don't appreciate the help and support I get here, believe me, I really do, it's just a concious decision I make so that my time IS my time and feels like it too.
Anyway, to the matter at hand - it's been 12 days, which means over the weekend I made double figures (yay!) and I still maintain that for the most part, so far it's not been to bad. As I've said before, most of the times I've wanted a cigarette, it's not the nicotine I'm after, it's the act of smoking, the habit rather than the addiction that is showing itself, and for me that's very easy to over come - it's a simple choice. I either choose to smoke or I choose to occupy myself with another activity instead.
The reason I know this to be the case is because the most regular place I feel like having a cigarette is in the car, when driving to or from work. I haven't smoked in the car for over a year (we got a new car and wanted to keep it nice) but it's something I always missed doing when on the daily commute. Any other car journey, I'm fine with, because it's out of the ordinary, but the same journey, day in, day out, at an hour each way, I'm sorry but I get bored.
Anyway, hopefully I can carry on like this, not far from completing two weeks
Good luck to everyone else, and thanks again for the nice messages
