Today is day 18 and I feel great. I'm 53 years old and I started smoking when I was 13 or 14. How in the world did I get here? How did I smoke reds for 40 years and still be here to talk about it? Smoking suddenly feels like a distant memory. I haven't had a real withdrawal in over a week. I'm having very few cravings and they're easy to kick aside. I experienced insomnia for a bit, but I think that's gone now. I definitely recommend "The Easy Way to Quit Smoking". It's not a very well written book, but it makes so much sense. Thanks everyone in this community. Just reading other discussions and receiving encouragement is a great help. I hope to be that person that inspires someone else and maybe help them get through the day. I don't know why this time is different, but even my wife has noticed that I'm not experiencing mood swings and I'm more relaxed then I've been in years. If I can give anyone out there advice it would be a very simple statement. Quit smoking because you want to quit smoking. Make it your decision. I think I spent three months convincing myself of this before I smoked the last one. I feel like this is the one thing I did that is making this quit successful.
