hello everyone

my rollercoaster continues. emotions are up and down. i am tired from not sleeping. i have very little interest in things around here. sure i do the stuff i have to .. washing, cooking, cleaning, administration of TLC to my gorgeous boys (not necessarily in that order), but that is about it. 

i know i am going to beat this, i am willing to ride this out. i have had depression a few times before ... this is not that different. just with added cravings :-(

thank you to all those others who share their stories on here, and also big thanks to those who take the time to respond to my posts. i have to admit, this is the first time i have ever been on a site like this that i leave my views and respond to the views of others. i do a lot of writing on paper, never to be read or responded to.

reading others' success stories definately cheer me up, and the stories of doubts and problems ... well my thoughts are with you all.

stay strong everyone,

    Hi. It's day 16 for me, cold turkey, after 43 years of smoking, and its still really hard.

    To elaborate. It's not hard all of the time. I think the hardest time of all was in the first few days when I had decided that it had to be now to quit. The withdrawals before even quitting were quite extraordinary. After that it wasn't quite as bad, except on occasion quite unexpectedly.
