Hi All. I've got 5 1/2 weeks under the belt. My longest quit before this one was 5 1/2 weeks so I will soon be in uncharted territory. I'm trying to learn from the mistakes of the past.
The last quit I made a deliberate decision to start smoking again. Why? The underlying annoyance. The mild but constant aggravation. Like listening to a tap dripping when you are trying to fall asleep. It doesn't hurt and it's not overt but it grinds on your nerves.... and it doesn't stop.
I don't want to use a cigarette... if I did I would be smoking... not writing. I just want someone to turn off the dripping tap.
Craves are hard but temporary and is what most people talk about. Has anyone else had trouble with the dripping tap? Any advice on how to get past it? How long did it last for you? I can honestly say I have never reached a point where not smoking has been as comfortable as smoking.
