Hi..Its my 7th day of quitting.right now, i am experiencing a craving that is very powerful that i have experienced within this short period.it feels like crushing me.i hope this moment too shall pass.
Congratulations on seven days quit Joel, ride the wave weather the storm, you will come out the other side stronger
Thankyou Jatchat..the Hellweek is over!i didnt thought i will reach this milestone.Now i am determined and its getting quite easy now.What about you Jatchat? I would like to hear from you.
Four days quit going into my fifth, all's good Missed a patch for a few days, but put a new one on this morning so I don't put myself under undue pressure, taken it one day at a time and hoping for the best. I am 71 yrs of age and have had numerous quits, trying to make this one stick. Smoked for 40 years have spent most of this year quit, longest quit this year was 10 weeks. I am married and my partner is a smoker, makes it hard when they're in the house all the time, I just have to keep my distance, partner smokes outside. Good luck with your quit
Congratulations on your fifth day!you are doing great.Having a partner who smokes is really a challenge..i hope she too will quit for good.i have no much life experience as you.i have been smoking for 1 year and i recognized its taking control over my life.i am 26 year old.i believe even if its one year or 40 year of smoking, with right attitude and commitment,the effort of quiting might be equal and we can enjoy the freedom from this addiction that we will recieve in the coming days.keep connected.

Congratulations as you continue your path to permanent freedom!
Yeah - I especially like the parts:
"She said to visualize the cravings rolling over me in waves and to understand that these cravings are an indication of my body re-adjusting and healing itself. This was a true light bulb moment for me and directly led to my salvation."
"I found that I started to embrace the challenge of the process of recovery from nicotine addiction. The real fun began when I made a game of it. I analyzed my triggers and devised strategies to deal with them. The joy of seeing my strategies work was powerful reinforcement for me and lifted my self-esteem tremendously."
You can change your experience by changing your mind - it takes less than a second.
Maybe easier to write here and then things don’t get lost with the ones you don’t know. So you are 19 days now? That’s fantastic!
Hi Lore.. Thankyou so much. I am so happy today. What about you?
Good morning Joel!
Gald you are feeling happy! I’m feeling pretty good but could have slept more. It is a rainy day here now and that always makes me want to nap. I’m glad I don’t smoke now and am constantly thinking about the next one in the rain.
