I realize that two weeks is miniscule in the broad spectrum of the spice/time continuum, but going two weeks without a cigarette is a major victory for me.
Although I craved cigarettes a few times yesterday, and this morning -- oddly enough -- I'm still hanging tough.
Way to go, Bullwinkles!!
Doesn't matter if it's "only" 2 weeks.....it's wonderful considering you were/are very addicted. 2 weeks here and 2 weeks there, and before you know it, you'll have 2 months...2 years,...etc.
I never thought I'd make it to the 1st month, and now it's been over 3 years!! You be here too in 3 years, ya hear me lady?!! I know you're trying to take it only, "one day at a time"...but I also know your goal is to quit permanently....and I think you will!!
Hi Bullwinkle I,m Here For You At Any Time ,i Have Been Smoking For 44yr. I Quit For For 3 Months To Care For My Mother , Did,nt Even Miss It. Came Back Home ,and Back To Old Friend.

Pidy - to answer your questions, I am using the patch, started smoking at age 24 and I'm now 45. I stopped smoking for two years once about 20 years ago, but have smoked a pack a day every day since then.
