I put out my last cigarette on 17 September 2015 and I am delighted how well I am doing, just taking one day at a time. Day 3, 4 and 5 were probably the worst for me with cravings but I kept telling myself having a cigarette could kill me whereas the cravings won't.....I was also an emotional wreak, could burst into tears at any time, restless, coughing, sense of smell has big time increased and still not sleeping well, only sleeping 5 hours and waking up wide awake. But hopefully these will pass within the next couple of weeks. My main feeling at the moment is anxiety and nervous that I may be having it too easy and is it going to get worse with regards the cravings and relapsing. I am terrified of relapsing, my husband is off them over a year and he did say the first 4 - 5 weeks are the hardest and he had severe cravings around week 4. I know I need to take one day at a time, but any advice on daily motivators that may help
