    That’s the right attitude Ceecee75, you can overcome the cravings as long as your mindset is nope - not one puff ever; otherwise, one puff will take you right back to square one. Good luck. Sending courage and perseverance your way.

    Try to find the Mindset that we advise here Ceecee75. Thinking " I want one but won't give in no matter what, is commendable, but the right approach is to put in positive terms that you are not denying yourself something. Instead think I am a non-smoker and I am wiser now and I am going to do this like others here have. I want to be free!

    Think positive and you can do this. Nicotine never gave you anything, and once realizing that, you can put it in the past without desire. Read and learn. Knowledge is power.

    Thanks guys!! I will remember your advice.
    Last night was brutal!!
    I did some deep breathing, drank water, and reminded myself that I am choosing to rid myself of a disgusting addiction that doesn’t care if I live or die. But I care! I made it through the night guys!

    Hi Ceecee, congratulations on your decision to take back control of your life. Quit smoking will probably be one of the most challenging struggles physically and psychologically you will ever face in life, the nicotine cravings, the temptation to light up when stress hit you, will inevitably attack and try to break your “Will”. You have to stand strong and push through those moments, your will to stay nicotine free have to be stronger then your desire to be enslaved.
