I have made it one month and two days nicotine free. Days are easier than they were that first week. (N.O.P.E. for me as I never want to experience hell week again).
I'm finding that I get "urges" rather than cravings ... But it's easier to overcome /ignore them. And it's only if we go to places we used to go (but have not been since we quit smoking)
Really weird... I can see the "ties" I guess.. that the addiction to nicotine had and the habits with it.
I think I understand the "two sets of seasons" post more now. Years and years of smoking were tied into a lot of habits/routine.
I understand that it will be a lifelong battle to never give into Nicorderm.
I did not think that I would make it this far and am grateful for every non smoking minute!
One thing I have noticed though is that I am extremely hungry.. all the time. I have not gained any weight (in fact I lost a couple pounds. Yay grapes and dark chocolate) but this is a concern of mine.
I seem to be switching the smoking habit to an eating habit. Food just taste so much yummier!
New goal: excercise more eat less sugar.
