Thought I'd make one last post in this part of the forum before I earn the right to post in the 3 months room tomorrow night.
8 weeks! So pleased to have made it this far. I feel much more in control of my quit. Earlier, it felt like I was on a roller coaster and helplessly riding the waves of each craving as they washed over me. Now I still have the cravings but I'm much more adept at tackling them head on; sometimes the cravings I do get are very powerful but I now am able to recognise what triggered them and have developed a broad understanding of the nature of my psychological addiction... I've got the measure of 'him', and he's still there, still a threat but I know that he's getting weaker and has much less potential to overcome me.
