Well it is day 22. I have to say last week I was getting a little depressed. I think I have found the culprit. My lack of nicotine, when your mind does not get it, it will make you sad and irritable. I think if I did not use an aid on top of this website I would not have made it. The reason why the past week I have been down is probably because I went from using 4mg lozenges 4-8 times a day, to using 2mg lozenges 2-4 times a day. I still do not get any cravings, just sometimes feel hard to keep positive. Yesterday I also managed to come down with a nasty cold, or flu. I am not sure what it is, but I have to drive three hours tomorrow so I hope I can shake it today.

Anyways so I feel like telling the truth about my quit. I came here to this website knowing I had to quit. I felt like I was going to lose my girlfriend to smoking, and I did not want that. I however came in and thought can I really do this? Is it possible? I had no faith in myself, and did not really feel ready to quit. I did it anyways and joined the site. I figure OK we will do this as a little experiment. After about four days, and posting constantly I realized this was not an experiment anymore, this is final, and I will not turn back on my ways.

Here is to 22 days clean, 112 dollars saved, and 500 cigarettes avoided.
