I don't want to intrude on Max's tips, so I'm creating a new thread to expand on his point that month 3 is an important milestone. For me, the three month mark is where I finally start to feel like I’m out of the woods. It concerns me when people tell new quitters that things will start to get better after the third day, because that just hasn’t been my experience at all. Having done this too many times now, I know it’s a struggle up until three months. Sure, the cravings do gradually ease and become less severe even after a couple of weeks, but they are still mighty potent and require a lot of strength and will power to overcome. If you allow yourself to believe things will be all better in a matter of days or a few weeks, you will probably get worn down and depressed long before you get to the point where it becomes relatively easy. Planning for a hard three month campaign will put your mind in the right place and give you a better shot at success. :cool:
