Here I am one day shy of 7 weeks :). I haven't been posting much recently as I've been quite busy socially, but my quit's feeling stronger and stronger each day. I'm not about to get complacent as that's where the danger is, but I haven't had a real craving or felt uncomfortable for a few days now. This is good!!!!!! :cool:.
I never thought I'd ever get this far, particularly during the 3-5 week mark when all my energy left me and I was really struggling. You fine people here held me up until I could support myself again and I made it through!! I'll be forever grateful to you for that.
What I'm trying to say is that if things are getting tough and you read things like "I promise you it gets better", I'd lay money that your initial thought is probably unprintable :D. Well, it actually *is* true!! The cravings do get less frequent and less intense. Then one day, you realise that you've gone a whole day without thinking about smoking. That day happened to me a few days ago and it's such a joy!!
So if you're finding it hard, please knuckle down and get through it any way you can. Drink water, chew gum, eat chocolate, dig the garden, have a nap, anything but smoking. Believe me, beating this thing once and for all is worth all the short-term discomforts. And they *are* short-term!!
Thank you for listening to my ramblings. I seem to be on the home straight and that's given me a real boost!!
