hi there. I'm so glad I found this community. I have been a heavy smoker for the last 35years of my life. With heavy, I mean really really heavy, in the end I smoked 50-60 cigs a day. I'm so greatful to find and get inspiration from experiences by longtime adicts here.
I didn't stop because of money or health. I nevertheless appreciate very much that my health and the one of my bank account improve fast :-)) I stopped because I totally hated the fact that I was a slave to nicotin addiction. I didn't want to go out anymore because this meant that I couldn't smoke. So I quit.
I've managed to stay away from cigs for 33 days now. Two things really helped a lot: 1. keeping busy and 2. getting a loooooot of sleep. This helped with the cravings and improved my mood.
the cravings come and go. It actually feels more like not being able to relax and feeling quite tense and nervous. From what I've read so far, I can expect that the worst will be over in 2 more month. It's a good perspective. I nevertheless wish there was a fast forward button to skip this part ;-)
