I am so happy to be nicotine free for 2 weeks now. All in all it has been remarkably stress free. I have tried to focus on all the gains in quitting rather than any perceived loss and has really helped me.
Health wise I have had a bit of a sore throat the last couple of days and have been coughing up some gunge. But better out than in, I guess. I wouldn't say I have craves now, just occasional thoughts but I quickly disperse them with memories of the smell and my hacking cough.
I love the freedom. I don't have to check how many cigarettes I have or make endless visits to the cashpoint. I am very partial to my smoke-free life.
