nearly at the 100 hours mark, feeling much better and more positive today, it helped to know that the 72 hour point is where the cravings are at their worst, so to get past that is a bit of a triumph, but am not going to be complacent at all.
I have started a cash or ash tub, but seeing as i didnt have any money to buy cigarettes, let alone put in the tub, i have been putting £5 iou's in it every day, this week, and will continue to do so all of next week until payday. then i should have nearly £100 in iou's to change for cash, so i can keep half in the tub and treat myself with the other half.
Good luuck to everyone else at this stage too, it will get easier from now on, and everytime you feel like a cigarette, just tell yourself, would you want to go through the horrible time you have been through the last 72 hours, the hardest part!!
