I just wanted to give an update since my last post. I quit smoking cold turkey on November 3rd, 2015 after ~10 years. It has been a battle but I have not taken a single puff since then. I feel so much better. I have smaller urges now only when I am stressed or in a bad mood. Other than that, I can be around my friends who smoke and just live a normal life. I started going to the gym consistently about 2 months ago so that helps with relieving some stress. It feels good to not be dependent on anything in order to "calm" down. If anyone needs any advice or needs a ear to vent to, please feel free to message me!
