Hello all. I'm just a few days short of being stopped for a month. I'm pleased with the success so far but that's about all I can say. The good days I've had, where I've allowed myself to think that maybe a corner has been turned, have been followed by two or three days of hanging on for dear life. I know it'll get better but on bad days, and this is one, I wonder whether the effort is worth it. I beat myself up for thinking like this and for not being able to maintain the euphoric optimism of the good days, and the early days, of my quit. One thing I find encouraging is that on a previous quit which lasted for 17 days I started smoking again following some craves that weren't as strong as some of the ones I have withstood this time, so something has changed for the better. Oh well, another couple of “After Eights”and back to sleep for a bit.
