Seven months without any nicotine and no persistent craving in fact i actually craved a cigarette last week and it came as a surprise as i do not think of smoking or nicotine anymore. I am less breathless and i actually think or imagine i can feel the cleanliness of the air in my lungs. Worse side effects for me was my gums bleeding when brushed which has improved recently and the weight gain. An increase in two sizes is definitely caused by eating all day in the beginning and now getting christmas out of the way i am going to try to cut back on the biscuits and sweets that filled in for the nicotine originally. All this aside i intend to continue not smoking as i do feel better in myself and whereas I used to feel sluggish and tired i now feel energetic and buoyant and definitely healthier. Plus if i did have a cigarette or go back full time smoking i know i would just want to give up again as i do not want to smoke or be a smoker so may as well keep going with this attempt. Want to give a I wish everyone the drive to beat the craving
