It gets better every day. It may not feel like it at the time, but yes. You will count days, sometimes hours. You will get hit from out of nowhere with a crave and then it will pass. There will come a time where you will go..."Wow I didn't think about smoking once yesterday" or "Wow i forgot about smoking for the last 2 hours" You will go to a movie and sit though it and when it is over you will leave the theater and wonder....wow I didn't want to smoke halfway through the movie.
Yes it does get better and a little easier.
yes it does. However sometime it goes a bit over 3 month as in my case I will say I got peace at around 3.5/4 months.
It did not for me. I am at about the 4.5 month mark and am finally feeling some peace. I'm not totally without thoughts and still have some cravings. I think it is definitely different for all individuals. Time is the best defense we have. Take it day by day.
