wow. i have had 3 real cigarettes since wednesday, my last being on friday evening so am officially on day 2 of no cigarettes.
the e cig is working for me and strangely i seem to have more cravings at times when i wouldnt normally smoke like the middle of the afternoon. weird. im using the e cig a lot less than i expected but as ive said from the outset how much i use it is not by priority at this time. i think i have cracked quite a few of my habits in the last week by changing my routine slightly which is a real good start - ie: lighting up at the same point on the motorway, lighting up when i pick up the phone, lighting up automatically the minute i get up on a saturday morning etc.
my taste is back and its grrrreeeeeeeeeeeat. each hour that i get through without a cigarette motivates me for the next hour and its far less scary than saying to my mind "thou shalt not smoke ever ever again".
only downside is that i am waking up at 5am and before. not the end of the world for me as i get up at 6am anyhow but just a little strange.
thankyou sooooo much to everyone on here for keeping me going....and going until the battle is won forever.....
