My last cigarette was on December 9, 2007. So far, so good. I’ve been in stressful situations lately, which have triggered my cravings, but I have been able to hold on and not smoke.
At first I was questioning my ability to go without cigarettes, but have decided not to and just let it be. I’m doing well, and expect success.
Wish me luck…
I tried stopping cold turkey, but that didn’t work. I was miserable, and on edge most of the time. I’ve decided to cut back instead.
I don’t smoke during the day at all. This is easier for me when I’m working Monday through Friday, but I am getting better with dealing with it on the weekends. Just recently I was in the hospital for four days, and I was able to make it through without smoking at all! :-) Soon I will be cutting back on my evening smoking.
I’ve had people tell me try the patch or the gum, but I want to try to do this without using anything but my brain power and my willpower.
