Day 3 for Me

It took me 45 minutes to write a long review of my experiences only for this damn thing to say you are not logged in and I lost all text. I wanted a smoke so bad after that :(

All I want to say is congratulations to all those that decieded to quit, these first steps are always the hardest. This is my first attempt cold-turkey and the cravings are more managable than using the patch. I just keep telling myself if you give in and have a smoke now, you are just going to have to go through this torment all over again, not worth it.
