Day 50 WTF, A Craving?

Posted in Quit experiences 16 Mar 2020

So this quite thing has gone pretty well. Not easy, but plenty of mints ( non nicotine), food and damn, Day 50 and I was craving almost finding a reason to get a pack and light up. Tried justifying the corona virus bs, the kids will be home, what about work? OMG I CAN TASTE ONE. But NOT GONNA DO IT! I’m too deep at this point. My lungs feel great. My skin is better, I don’t friggin stink all the time. My kids would be sad and disappointed! I’d spend money better used. Ok thanks gang, I think I just really talked myself off the ledge!!!!

    You would feel worse physically, and mentally and you would not like yourself very much. You might have more urges to come but they are only memories of past experiences not good ones either. Its a thought only, let it float away

    It happens occasionally but the good thing is the longer you abstain the easier it gets and urges to smoke occur less and less frequently until there are no more.

    I'm on day 67 and have found it very hard the last week. I'm lucky I have great friends and family to support me. I am struggling with the physical pain lately. My ribs and back hurt and not sire why.
    Anyway keep strong and know you got this
