It’s been three years. Not the easiest thing I’ve ever done but I am so glad I did it. A few points to ponder:
1. The desire to smoke will pass whether or not you smoke, so don’t smoke: just put it off for another 10 minutes. Repeat as necessary until nap time.
2. Naps are your friend.
3. Drink lots of water. You should already be drinking lots of water. If you’re not, start now. Yes, I know coffee is mostly water. Not what I’m talking about. WATER.
4. Take baths. Swim in a pool or the ocean. I don’t know what it is with water but it really helped me.
5. Learn to breathe. Most of our breathing has been conscious breathing (i.e. inhaling). You need to re-learn how to breathe, especially when you’re stressed.
