The good thing is that you will try again. For me it hasn't been easy but I'm really happy that I stuck with it. It's a long journey ahead of me and I'm in it for the long run.

When you're ready, come back and we'll be around to support you, I know you can do it!

I used the gum and it was great because I only used it when I needed it. More at the beginning and I was able to gradually have a little less every day. After 1 month I stopped and I've been completely nicotene free for over a month now. It's nice to be able to write that, time flies by quickly!

How has your quit been?

That's great advice and I agree with you. I have been trying to figure out what is prompting me to have these cravings since I know they are 100% psychological. Strange thing is I have a positive attitude about quitting, I'm not missing smoking (except for the odd junkie-thought that crosses my mind) and I'm very proud of myself.

I think some of the crave days are because I'm experiencing new things, other times I think it's the nicodemon trying to get me back any way he can. One thing for sure is I'm super-happy to have quit and don't wish to ever go back. The good news is they don't happen often, but I'm ready to fight these one crave-day at a time.

 Thanks for the encouragement! I have quit again. I've got four days so far.

I have noticed that you are doing very well and I am happy for you!

Take Care!
