Just remember that you are stronger than the nicotine drug.. It will get easier and so many on this wonderful forum can attest to that!
The strength comes from within, we often don't give ourselves the credit we so rightly deserve. Stay strong, the withdrawals will pass, and the smoking addiction will soon be a distant memory.

Thank you for the support on this forum. Just a quick update on my circumstances.
No I did not smoke or have a drink despite great urges to do so. Am proud of that. Instead I vented on this forum and the responses were so supportive. I read them a few times over. Thank you. I also rang a friend. In short I’ve ended up with two job offers both are quite exciting and fulfilling work. Life will...
