Nearly two weeks. Temptation is minimal. But I remain guarded and still taking things one day at a time. It's just nice that the days don't appear to be taking quite so long now. That sounds an odd thing to say but I'm not so conscious of 'not smoking' anymore, which I guess is a good thing. I've dealt with stressful situations and come through them without sparking up; just makes me wonder why I used the excuse 'they help me focus' or 'they help me relax' so often. Odd how the nicotine addiction gets such a grip and persuades us for so many years that it needs to be part of our life for us to actually enjoy life! :confused: Good luck to all others going through the quitting experience because I bet we all have different thoughts and fears to relate.
