Howdy ICQ World. I just past a month nic-free. I can honestly say that I actually have 2/3 hours a day that I am not thinking about a craving. Thanks to the folks supporting this site. It keeps me reading, believing, and sharing.
ODAAT (One Day at a time!)
Thanks to those that have responded to my stories. Does anyone know a way to respond directly to people that comment on your story?
Yesterday i was actually salivating thinking about a nicotine hit. I haven't had that type of craving in 20 days. Today, not so bad. At this point a lot of traditional triggers have been presented to me. You see, I smoked or dipped to cover anxiety and stress. Well since my quit my wife has lost her job, I have a new boss, and the job has been very stressful. I'v not used through all those...
ODAAT - Remember that "One Day at a time". I'm on Day 21; after 25 years of smoking. The difference on this quit this time, no nicotine replacement therapy. it was so much easier after Day 3. I think NRT just teases you and eventually becomes a habit. Just do it cold turkey.
Hard, yes; work it YES!
