So, 15 hours into day two -- or 39 hours in total, whichever sounds longer!
...my cravings are far FEWER than yesterday, bizarrely.
I'm certainly not counting my chickens, but I haven't really thought about smoking
Yes, I'm wearing my patch. But I was yesterday, too.
Yes, I've got my mist spray thingie. But I've only used it once today, as opposed to
The only thing to have changed in my plan is to introduce the Allen Carr EasyWay
book into the mix.
I bought the audio version yesterday, and started listening to it on the way home
from work. It's really good, actually. I tend to respond better to audio/visual stuff
rather than books.
So maybe that's having an effect on my non-cravings? I dunno.
If you're interested, I got it from Audible (I already have a monthly plan):

Another thing which might be helping is the Max Kirsten Quit Smoking Now iPhone
(or Android) app. Basically a hypnotherapy session. I've listened to it both evenings
so far, but fell asleep halfway through both times ...but maybe it taps directly into
the subconscious or something? Who knows!
Here's the detail:

[FYI -- I'm not "affiliated" to either of these sites, so I'm not linking to them as a
sleazy way to make money. Just so we're clear on that!]
One last thing before I sign off: SLEEP :eek:
Both Monday night and last night I fell asleep easily (see above for the reason, lol),
but have woken up at 5am both mornings...and I'm NOT a morning person.
I have a theory, and it's related to the patches I'm using...
Before I bought my patches (the 24 hour ones), I read several reviews suggesting
I should ignore the instructions and apply them before bed, rather than first thing
in the morning. This apparently helps with the "first fag of the day" craving. Well,
I think the patch is giving me a nice dose during the night, which is actually waking
So tonight, I'll remove the one I'm wearing, and go "patch-free" overnight.
I'll let you know if that helps!
Once again, thanks for your continued support...rest assured you have my full support
for your quits too -- whatever stage you're at.
You're all superstars
