    Yes and 4 weeks is a great achievement, stay focused on your goal and pretty soon you can start peeling another day, week, month, months, then a year, how awesome is that....you have learnt to let go of the false friend and have survived, pat yourself on your back.
    Smokes have played a very major in our lives always, but we can do without them and you should start seeing some of your rewards of quitting..ie, extra $$$ in your wallet, your breath and your clothes and your surroundings don't stink like the ashtray.....if you had a cough? It should be easing by now.....the benefits of stopping certainly outweigh smoking cause apart from satisfying us for a about 5 minutes, there certainly is no benefits in smoking.
    You can do it.

    That's great. I'm 14 weeks clean...so I know what an accomplishment 4 weeks is. I don't have a lot to say that you don't know. I miss it...momentarily..once or twice a day. But I don't crave it. And I really don't miss it when I think about the stink...the poison...the handcuffs...and idiocy of literally choking myself to death. Actually...the last few years of my 40 year, pack a day habit were disgusting. That's part of what made quitting easy. That...and when the dental surgeon said there would be no point operating and doing bone grafts if I was still going to smoke. The best part...aside from the absolute freedom...is knowing that if I can quit cigarettes...I can do almost anything. Keep going!

    Well done, and well said, all of you :)
    A month, with no nicotine, pretty much frees your body of the addiction. The rest is all in your mind, and you can put it behind you for good.. Just make smoking a bad memory, of something stupid you did for too long.. :)
