Thank you Tia. I am going cold turkey as you say. I actually read a book called Easyway by Allen Carr and was so ready to stop by the end of it that I haven't had much of a problem. I do however know what you mean about the habits arounds making. I sometimes find myself standing there wondering what I should be doing instead of smoking. It's not so much that I really want to smoke as just don't know how to go through the day and not do it. I'm developing new patterns and just jumping on my treadmill for a walk to keep me busy. I have a really long commute to work, I would smoke anywhere from 2-3 times. It's definitely a struggle to keep my mind from fixating. It's day 8 smoke free today, and to be honest, I have had a hard time the last 3 days specifically. Not in craving a cigarette, but craving ALL the food. It's the hardest part right now.


First, good for you! First week is the hardest, they say. I don't know who they are. But, I do know quite a few people who read that book and quit smoking immediately, too. Maybe I should read it and apply it to my life in general. Good luck with the cravings! Ginger is supposed to be good for that, if you're into ginger, which I am. Candied ginger, sugar aside, is the perfect craving killer for me. It's so sharp and flavorful that I only need a nibble. Keep up your good work!
