i dont think stopping smoking should be portrade as it is. Its easy, its a choice, its the descision not to smoke again not the will power. Yes of course we will suffer but think of what we are leaving behind and thats just it - leave it behind. I've stopped now for 7 days and regardless of whether its 7 days or a year. I've stopped. why count the days for those who post threads after years? are these people living there lives counting days? they have done it - forget it - move on. i recon this mind set is the best way. yes we need support and the pat on the back but we also need to think why on earth did we smoke in the first place. Euphoria was the feeling that we were craving - we will forget that feeling the longer its left.
