Haven’t been on this site in ages but am smoke free since 9/11/13! I came here almost every day the first few years of being smoke free to read and learn and to seek help and encouragement and to give encouragement. THIS site and the people on this site made me realize I was missing nothing by quitting and cigarettes were NOT my friend but my enemy. My advice to all the newbies is come here everyday and read and blog. Drink lots of water, do deep breathing and when a crave hits get up and move around, turn music loud, close your eyes and repeat this will pass and it will! You can do this!
