Hi everyone :).
Here I am on day 26 - getting very close to the 4 week mark.
I'm finding that I don't think about having a cig much these days but I'm also very aware of how easy it would be to have one. If I go to the local shop or supermarket, I'm wistfully drawn to looking at my former brand on display behind the counter. I have a fleeting thought that I could just buy a pack and it wouldn't hurt. Thankfully, so far, I've been able to banish that thought very quickly and haven't caved. It was that warped thinking that caused my previous 9-month quit to crash :eek:. I've vowed not to let that happen again.
In the main, my quit seems very strong and solid still. I'm nowhere near as tense as I was in the first week, I have more energy, and I'm sleeping better. On the down side - my concentration's gone to pieces, but that seems to be gradually returning.
There are many ups and downs on this journey and sometimes the downs are so overwhelming that we cave in. Please don't!!! As I look back over the past 4 weeks, I can see that the general trend is towards 'up'. Sure there are dips from time to time, but they're becoming less frequent and less severe.
Stay strong everyone, and we can all beat this disgusting lethal habit!!
