As I write this I still cannot believe I have not had a cigarette in 5 days. I'm almost speechless over this accomplishment. Now, I've been here before but I felt so deprived and desperate to smoke by the 5th day. This time, this quit feels so different, so much more relaxed. I feel the cravings today but they are manageable, I identify them for what they are and do something else or pop in a piece of sugarless gum. Like I said manageable. I think I will re-read Allen Carr's book today, I want that method of quitting solid in my mind.
When I first started posting on this site I was still smoking along with taking Chantix. I felt like a fraud for posting. I mean I felt I shouldn't be allowed here since I'm still smoking. Looking back on those days, I'm so glad I stayed on this site. For this quit everything was so we'll planned out. I had read everything anyone gave me, I read for hours upon hours on peoples blogs. I put together quit kit and I had just finished reading Allen Carr's book. Although quitting is very important being ready and educated for the Quit is just as important. To me it has been like night and day.
I hope all is well with everyone. Just remember NOPE = Not One Puff Ever.
