So I think I had a personal breakthrough when it comes to managing those disgusting cravings that used to pop up every now and then. I used to use sheer will to fight it off, by telling my self "I can't smoke a cigarette. I shouldn't smoke. I wont smoke." All the while I subconsciously thought about the words "smoke" and "cigarette."
Thinking that way only made things worse. Every time I told ...
First, i want to say Hello to everyone in here. Now i’m willing to share my strategy which is i using at the moment to beating of craving or to calm my feeling down.

We have been brainwashed for years.
We are not weak willed. We were so determined to teach ourselves to smoke despite the foul taste and gagging. We were told it was bad , unhealthy, but not ADDICTIVE.

I am testing here before writing and no post. Read the next entry called QUITTING SMOKING CAN BE EASY! REPEAT QUITTING SMOKING CAN BE EASY! We need to undo all the brainwashing. That is not to say that you may find it hard, but QUITTING SMOKING CAN BE EASY!
So its been 122 days since I went cold turkey.

Am I going to have to fight an urge to light one up every day? Does it ever go away?
I was craving them so much it was like a hallucinary experience for me to get at them again. My Mom got me some patches to really do the trick and make it all go away once I made my mind up: no more of it!

Hi everyone still on the non smoking train
I am still struggling with cravings.
Especially first thing in the morning.
The minute I open my eyes it's a feeling of o wait I don't smoke anymore and I fell a downer feeling happening and I don't like it.
Why this happens I do not no.
Yes I am happy that I no longer smoke but I think it's still fresh in the mind I no longer smoke.
