I've written a lot about how hard this quit is, so I wanted to write today and let you know that I'm feeling great! I still struggle in the car, but I tried the advice about making stories up about other drivers, and it really helped me get through the urge to smoke. If I can just make it through the 20 seconds where I really really want to smoke, it goes away (or, at least, fades.) I also put on "Lola" by the Kinks at full volume and sang at the top of my lungs. I'm sure I look completely insane to anyone driving by me, but I'm doing what it takes to keep myself going.
People keep asking me if I feel any "different." At first, I really didn't... but, wow. After 24 days, I'm starting to feel better than I have in soooooo long.
One day, hour, minute at a time....
Just so you know, I could never have done this without the support of everyone on this site!!!!! XOXO!!
