I'm Jessica, 25, I smoked my first cigarette when I was 17. Since then I smoked occasionally, till I was 21 and I moved away from home, to college and I started smoking regularly. I've never smoked a lot, my maximum was about 15 a day. I smoked my last cigarette on the 30th of June, right before bed. It's not the first time I'm trying to quit but it's the first one I've made it into week 2. This time I have a lot more will power then the past times. I have also read Allen Carr's book which helped me a lot, but motivation was also a great point since it's been the second time I've read the book. The first time I read it I lacked motivation and my quitting lasted for about a day or even less.
This time I'm really determined to make it work. So far it's been great, almost no cravings, I ate normally my appetite did not increase. Today...today it's tough. I've had dreams about smoking all night. I woke up at 5.30 a.m. and I couldn't fall back asleep and all I thought of was to go buy some cigarettes at 7 when the store closest to me opens. Luckily there's also a gym in my neighborhood that opens at the exact same time and I went there instead of buying cigarettes. It's been better for a few hours, but now (it's 3:15 p.m. here) I'm back to where I was this morning.
So I thought that instead of giving in to the cravings I'd find a forum and write about it. Maybe my conscience will kick in, or the craving will go away by the time I finish writing.
Any words of wisdom for me? Please, I don't wanna go back to that habit, but I'm not feeling ok right now and I don't have a good record when it comes to dealing with these cravings
