On 1 Month Steve!

You said. "I don't find myself craving a cigarette much but I do have this sense of malaise.  A feeling like something is missing.  It seems to be lessening as time goes on which is nice. "

Steve, I guarantee you if you keep on this path of cessation it will lessen to a point where you will think of smoking as just something you used to do.

(((Hugs)))

Thank you.  That's very encouraging.  In my previous attempts I would get to this point and some strange wave of self pity would derail me.  I feel a lot more in control this time.  I don't feel like I am "giving up" smoking, I feel like I am overcoming a disease.  So when I hear long time ex-smokers reinforce the notion that the eventually I will be able to live a normal life again its very encouraging.

Denim,

Thanks! 

It feels good to be at this point again. You know what? I no longer miss the smokes. My problem now is the nicotine gum. 

This is permanent.
