If I can Quit then believe me when I say SO CAN YOU!!

Posted in Staying quit 03 Jun 2014

33 days off nicotine now! My worst crave is no longer waking up, instead it is while playing video games. I can wake up without thinking cigi now which is wonderful. While playing video games I got used to lighting up and I am missing this.

I have been substituting with junk food and I have put back on the weight which is a bloody shame. But, oh well, that is better than smoking!

I'm aiming for 2 months so I'm over the half way mark! 2 months because most people say that's how long it takes. Those that have quit say they craved for 2 months. So I figure I'll be one of those who need 2 months to mostly get over the crave. It will never completely go away the craving but I only think about cigi's occasionally now. Maybe 5 times a day I think about smoking which is way better than every 5 minutes like it was when first starting out with the detox!!

It truly gets easier as time progresses. If your a cigi smoker then I say you can quit too! Really! If I can do it then so can you! I feel so much better and healthy! And the savings of $$$!!!
