I tried to stop smoking a few times already, this time I thought it would be the last try, but after day 5 the cravings just get so strong I don't know what I can do to fight them off.

Any advice to overcome really intense cravings? The ones that make you go really really mad.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your reply!

I did get a few ones yesterday (blame it on booze...), but I'm not giving up. That's already 20 hours ago and I intend to stay clean!

Again, thank you for the support!

The biggest issue with smoking once in a while is that you need to go through the first days (which are the toughest) all over again.

Same here, feeling you sir.

Let's look at the positive side: the times you were NOT smoking still had benefits, and we can always start again NOT to smoke.

It does feel good not to smoke doesn't it.
