On January 2, 2008 I said to myself, "self you have to quit smoking even though you love it. You can't afford it anymore." I was smoking 3 packs of cigarettes a day to the tune of about 500 dollars a month. Smoking anesthetized me, it gave me comfort and I had smoked for 35 years. I quit cold turkey that day. Anyway, I have done great up until today when I reached for a cigarette and of course there weren't any. I googled support and here I am. I really haven't had much of a struggle and not sure why today is so bad. The weather is gorgeous and I am not in any pain. As a woman maybe it is hormonal or maybe it just takes a few years for the nicotine to completely leave my neuro-receptors. The craving has left and I am still smoke free. Nice to know there is a site I can come to and post my thoughts. Hang in there and remember: One day at a time.
