Seven weeks without tobacco, and I am settling into life as an ex-smoker. I'd say I think about smoking maybe once or twice a day, but the feeling passes quickly. It has been an interesting journey. I just returned from a week in Paris... in Paris of all cities I thought I would be tested because it just seems like a city where one needs to smoke. But I handled it well. Didn't have a single fag. As time passes by, the confidence to keep up the non-smoking lifestyle increases. Hope everyone on here is growing that confidence day by day. Everyone has a different journey and may need a different approach, but I can say that stopping is really very doable if we keep our minds set. The one side effect has been a bit of weight gain, but it's under control. And what a small price to pay!
