Day #3 ended up w/a buring desire

I thought today was going so well. I woke up took a shower, got coffee & a bagel.  I get to work and things seem to be going well. I email everyone a daily inspiration. *I'm going to try to do the each day so, I can stay positive. I felt wonderful all day no cravings. I feel really great not tired, not smokey, not having a buring desire  :)  So about 530 I think I wish I could smoke. I have a choice to smoke but, once I smoke I now have no choices & I become powerless. I heard in a meeting the a craving last 1 minute. I believe it's true. It didn't last long.  I guess what happens is they keepy coming back and a minute long. This sounds more realistic then they last 1 minute and go away. Nope they are there but 60 seconds is a long time. I tried holding my breath :)  I am greatful that I made it 3 days and I have no desire to smoke. I've attended 2 MA meetings and I plan to continue to go and I will get a sponser.  Yay it's day 4 (12:01am)... Sweet sweet dreams!

Best of luck to you on the not smoking thing. I don\'t know how that addiction goes since I\'ve only done it once, but I do smoke cigarettes. When I\'ve tried to quit and I\'d have a craving. I\'d look at my watch and say, I can make it to a certain time. The craving would pass and next thing I\'d know is that it wsa way past the time I set for myself.

Nice job, Christina! One day very soon those pesky cravings will disappear, for now it\'s a fight, I know. But I can see that you\'re a fighter...keep up the good work and you\'ll be a conqueror and you\'ll feel soooo good about THAT too!
