31 days

One calendar month today. It's been a mixed journey so far. First few days were the worst of course forever looking for my cigs even though there weren't any, then the feeling of loss almost like grieving. 2nd week was a little easier, 3rd week I reduced down my nicotine in my ecig, which caused a few cravings for a few days, one really bad day in Benidorm. I read Allan Carrs easy way and although it didn't work for me as his testimonials suggested it would it did make me think differently about cigs, so worth the read.  I am sleeping better and I really hate the smell of cigs now. So here's to the next month at the end of which I hope to have weaned myself off the ecig too.  I love this forum the support and reading other people's success and struggles.
