I quit 9 days ago, used an inhaler a few times during the first couple of days then decided to go cold turkey.
I've been fighting the cravings pretty well until yesterday afternoon and today, when I'm being hit by urges every few minutes. I'm just exhausted by fighting off the cravings and I'm in a terrible mood. Just blew up at work because I feel so angry and frustrated with myself. I wish I could talk to someone who understood and could support me. I've spoken to a nice person at the Quitline but they were giving general advice, which I don't need right now.
Unfortunately none of my friends or family smoke (or used to) so I feel very alone -- like I'm fighting a demon that just will not stop attacking me. I know that giving in and just having a cigarette will not solve the problem -- they'll be another urge soon after that.
Any tips on how to keep strong and keep fighting the cravings would be really great.
