Day One - Really Surprised

I was really negative and scared approaching this quit. I didn't have a clue what to do with myself first thing this morning, coffee and fag missing. BUT I have not wanted one all day; a couple of pangy cravings but not that over-whelming urge to detach from humanity and maim to get my drug of choice.

I tried a couple of puffs of Clear Mist but the hiccups were dreadful so, I'd like to say it's will power but it isn't. It's more an acceptance that today I do not need to smoke and I'll deal with tomorrow when it comes. That's what always trips me up - thinking how it will be at some future event at which I usually smoke. Now it's about living in the now.

Thanks all.
