Seven weeks today and still smoke free

Hi all,7 weeks today ,I am still getting the odd craving ,but it definitely gets easier,only 1 more week to reach my next mile stone 2 months,never thought I would get this far,but goes to show what you can do if you put your mind to it,started on champix ,but stopped after 5 weeks ,I've been cold turkey since,the wife packed up ,but started again,but she has cut right down 10 a day,so not to bad she goes out side to smoke most of the time,and does not smoke in the car,so you have to be great full for small mercies,would not say I feel any better ,apart from not coughing as much,put on nearly a stone in weight,but not worried about that to much,some times I really miss my ciggie ,but I'm determined not to give in,my taste buds are still all over the place ,but then I did smoke 30 a day for about 43 years, chewing a fair bit of gum,and sucking the odd sweet, the other thing I've noticed is my sleep patern is all over the place,might be to do with radiopherpy I had on my shoulder,but that finished 4 weeks ago,in bed most nights by 9 ,and waking up at 5-6 in the morning, but offset it with 3/4 hour in the afternoon,when I can,oh well onwards and upwards:)
