I've given up smoking a few times. The last time was the last time I will ever have to do it. I have always gone cold turkey so the first 3 days are hell. The first 3 weeks are hard. The first 3 months are dangerous. I think it takes about 3 weeks for the nicotine to get out of your system. Occasionally I would like a cigarette but once I think about how awful I felt the craving goes away. Good luck with it
Each time i have tried, drinking has been my weak spot. It hasn't been this time. I've had a few boozy nights and although i've thought about smoking, it has been fleeting. In the past, as soon as i thought about it, i knew i was going to buy fags.
Up until this week, the though of the smell of it repulsed me. And if i passed someone smoking in the street, it made me feel sick.
These last few days i can actually taste it. I know it's just my mind playing tricks on me and i can do this.
Better. I drank red wine and sucked lozenges and thouht about smoking a lot and considered going to the shop and felt hugely relieved at 11pm when i knew the shop was closed an to buy fags would mean a huge trek that i had no intention of making.
