Today is my 21st month anniversary. I'm happy to say that I'm still smoke free. Unfortunately I also feel like I'm still struggling to STAY quit. I recently went to the Jersey shore with my girlfriend for 3 days & everywhere I turned there was tons of people smoking. I just couldnt get away from it. This was the first time that I was in this kind of a situation. I have been staying clear of parties etc because I still don't know if I trust myself enough to be with smokers. Grannie once told me that it is a distant memory & I constantly remind myself of that. I also wonder if I still get these psychological urges because thats all I've known for over 40 years of smoking & that I started smoking when I was 12 years old. I also stopped recently narcotic pain pills (percocet & Suboxone)--weaned off of them so I have been pill free for a little while too. The urges for the cigarettes seem to be much stronger than the pills. This is weird to me because I thought after this amount of time, that I wouldn't be getting strong urges by now & that smelling someone smoking would make me sick but cigs still smell good to me. Is this normal? Does anyone else feel like this? Any advice?
