I am glad I have been on this site and checking in regularly because I learned that this third week can be pretty tricky. I have found it so but continue to remain smoke-free. I think in the very beginning we are charged with the enthusiasm of our decision and are ready to fight the good fight. After a couple of weeks (and weeks which I must say I have not coughed at all) I think I have started to ask myself 'Why exactly have I chosen to put myself through this particular torture?'. There is a dull background answer which says 'Because you wanted and needed to' but there is also another louder answer which says 'Yeah ... you can pop up the road and end all of this anxiety'. I just have to keep on shutting down that loud voice and do my best to ignore it. Today, I have over compensated with eating and distraction but I figure that is a reasonably small price to pay for a rough part of the road. This is a game of cat and mouse.
