Today is Day 192. Just a little over a week until I pass the 200 mark. I STILL crave. When I say that I crave, I mean that, without fail, every single day, I think to myself, "Hmmmmm, it sure would be nice to have a delicious cigarette." If I'm sad or in a bad mood, I'd like to have an entire cartoon of cigarettes. Most people that I talk to who have been quit for six months don't experience this level of desire for a cigarette. Apparently, at Day 192, this romanticizing nicotine is slightly abnormal. It's not life altering, it doesn't stop me from living life, but I still crave. Whatever it is, that's he state that I find myself in! Because of that, I have had to accept the new reality that I may crave forever and that I can survive these cravings. Having quit smoking apps definitely helps me. Watching the days climb on the calendar makes me never want to turn the calendar back to Day One. The first few weeks were miserable for me. Why would I want to repeat them?
If anyone out there is past the six month mark and still craves on a daily basis, speak up. I'd love to hear from others who feel the way that I do.
