Are you drinking enough water? It sounds as though you may not be. And I mean water - not cups of sugar with a hot brown leave infusion added.

Keefy will know already that his tea drinking has dramatically decreased, the trouble is that most people who stop smoking try too much to have a totally life style change and fool themselves that everything they are doing is wonderful, but, their body and mind will tell the brain that this is a total revolution within a persons system, that can create side effects, sometime serious, therefore, one step at a time.

Do not count the days since your last ciggi, it is not a completion, it is the new,and future life style. Avoid telling people you have stopped smoking, simply refuse an offered cigarette, by saying you have a sore throat, or what ever. Never become that person who says smoking is a disgusting habit, these are the people who once smoked, and in reality they would love to have a drag on one. The craving mellows gradually, but you never become free of it.

Over the years I've had too many to count of my personal pleasures taken from me without consultation, I refuse point blank to loose the last one. That's one of the minor reasons I sit here, alone but for my cats, as happy as a pig in the dodah. :up

Without an emoticon, is that good or bad? I recall that you were against it some months ago.

Well, as Dusak is a bricklayer,[which really should be termed brick-setter for our politically correct members] please, no bad hen jokes, and the holder of the OOTSB, which only a few can lay claim to in the UK, I would suggest a little full bodied body smilie of a bricklayer working away on Bombay's Egyptian version of the Berlin wall. I crave recognition. Not.

Nicotine leaves the body within 24/48 hours so it isn't nicotine you are craving but the other crap they shove in ciggies, maybe formaldahyde?
Keep it up, it isn't easy, it is the habit that is the hardest to knock on the head, but once you do it, you hopefully will do it. Over 14 years for me now, so glad I packed it in.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
