I'm fairly new to this forum and I have generally received help and guidance this great forum provides and offered the well dones and the bits of support that we all need from time to time.
I have been cig free for 35 days and to be honest I have not felt too bad, a bit dodgy sleep patterns but that apart I've been great and was beginning to wonder what all the fuss was about.
However over the last two days, I have been a bit stressed with work and the kids and stuff and I would have quite literally fought a lion for a cig, I wanted one that much. In fact it was only luck more than effort on my part that stopped me from having one. I have been walking a lot recently to ease the excess weight that I know I will put on but I found a old lighter in the house that I took on my walk and was that close to calling into the shop!!! I think the only thing that stopped me was as I was walking to the shop, someone walked passed me who was smoking and the smell put me off and I also thought of the smell of me when I got back home that my wife and kids would have smelt and how upset I would have been in letting them down as my OH has been really supportive.
I presume that this is the dreaded cravings I have been reading about and I have to admit that I have never had an urge like that before, my long garbled question I suppose is does these craving ever go? Can I manage them a bit better? Can you ever spot one creeping up? Any help will do?
Thanks again forum and the continued best of luck to you all
