I made it to one month without a smoke! Not once did the cravings get the better of me, not even on the couple of occasions when I was out on the lash (wedding, funeral, celebration of my cousin getting his PhD)!
Came into college this morning, sat having a coffee with the folks I normally chat with (they all happen to be at least ten years older than me), and when the subject of quitting came up, they turned some all-knowing smiles on me and said "Yeah, but nobody ever really quits. The best you can do is to give them up for a while. At some point in the future, you'll start smoking again."
I had no idea how to answer that, and it really took the wind out of my sails. Eventually, I stole a line of dialogue from The Mentalist: "Every time you light one of those things, remember that somewhere, a billionaire tobacco executive is laughing at you."
