If a person takes the time to stop to think about how many decades they smoked then it only stands to reason that it's going to take some time to get through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and mood swings and to relearn life without the crutch of smoking, I smoked for 40 yrs and in the first few days and wks of quitting there were some days that I'd blatt like a baby one moment and the next I'd feel like screaming or maybe I'd want to rip my hair out or tear someone's face off, I actually found this site back in June of 2014 and read everything I could to educate myself on this horrid addiction and set up my quit date but when it arrived I wasn't ready so I reset it for the 14th of July 2014 and stuck with it but for some reason I didn't return to the site until my 18th day when I was struggling to the point of jumping in my car and buying a carton of cigarettes instead of just a pack thankfully I remembered this site and got on line and commented on something for the 1st time because I was hiding in the shadows up to that point so someone said I should write a blog and say a little bit about myself and my quit and the rest is history. Our lives are way too short to knowingly continue to slowly kill ourselves and relapsing isn't an option at all so quitting smoking and Remaining Quit is the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves our health, family and even our wallets will be happy we are Exers so as Dale says keep them away from your face and the only way is through. Stick with N.O.P.E. and vigilance because S.I.N.A.O and H. A. L.T
