I'm at eight days today, without a cigarette. The urges to smoke come and go and I don't yet see any reduction in those thoughts. This morning I'm packing for a rigorous two month trip and it seems I want a smoke, more than ever.
That is not going to happen. My Blood Pressure is lower than it has been in three years, my chest for the most part is clear and I have increased energy levels, even after a week with no tobacco.
All I need to do is focus on the significant improvements and any pleasure from a cigarette pales, by comparison.
