well its day 7 - although i'm taking NRT i feel miles better! stopping for me is not the money even though it does cost a bomb for a pack of smokes these days it was more for the health. Already i feel smiles better, bags more energy in mornings which is one of the best factors to quitting for me.. Before i used to want to cry when my alarm sounded but now i'm loving it. I dont stink, i can breath more easily. one down fall for some maybe taking patches is the nightmares! but i love them its a bit like going to the pictures to watch a scary film but your in it.. awesome! i'd tell non smokers to wear a patch for that reason only (joke) but seriously what a difference already to my life. you could call it an urge when you crave a cig but i like to not label it with an urge to smoke more like the missing of the euphoria which will i suppose always come and go throughout my life as a non smoker but the longer you go without the less you'll remember! The thing about fags is they controlled my personality and being free of that is the best feeling in the world. I dont get hot headed about things i used to when i smoked i know have a calm take on everything. If you are thinking of stoppin then make sure you tell yourself and mean it that you'll never put another fag in your mouth again. So when you get that pang, craving just say it to yourself " i'll never put another fag in my mouth again" even when i was strugglin at day two-three i never even had an incling of buying smokes because my mind is made up never to smoke again. choose the real life not the cigarette company's life they have you living. Find you and be you.
