Still blundering on

Hello all

I haven't visited the forum for a few weeks (not sure how long) as been very busy. I'm at 116 days , which is almost 4 calendar months since I quit. It's been very up and down and I've kept going with the hope that as time goes on it's going to get a bit easier. It hasn't really got easier though.. :( In fact last week I had some of my most challenging craving episodes and was so close to lighting up it's a bit discouraging. I am trying to learn a new role at work and am starting a course which will entail lots of studying at work and in my own time... I'm just finding that my brain isn't focussing and I keep having this rogue thought that if I could smoke I would be able to concentrate :( So far I haven't sucummed and I really don't want to. I keep remembering the awful nictone stains that the dental hygenist scraped off my teeth a few weeks ago and it's that which is preventing me from smoking as I don't want those stains back on my teeth.

Anyway... whinge whinge!!! Hope everyone else is well? I've been trying to catch up on news be reading posts.

    Hi Lauren, good to see you finding time to squeeze a post into your busy schedule.

    It might be worth bearing in mind that if you haven't done a lot of learning recently, it will take your brain a little while to get back into learning mode. So the brain is likely to be fuzzy for the time being, until it has got used to the new learning load. I don't think having a fag will alter that. :)
