Re: 3 Months Quit but still gasping for cig :-(
You are still taking in nicotine. You have stopped inahling the carcinogens in the paper cigarettes but you haven't gotten completely off the drug yet so I'm not suprised.
I quit cold turkey because I was afraid of prolonging the addiction to nicotine. I'm not saying step down methods are bad, just not something I thought I'd be able to deal with in a positive way.
You are halfway there. You have gone 3 months without the act of smoking. YAY! That's awesome!
Now you just have to complete the step down process and get completely off the drug.
You can do this. This is when you can take a step back and see why you REALLY want to get off this. The addiction is real and it is this strong for you right now.
I can tell you it won't always be cravings and thinking of smoking, things get better. You will end up with a life that will amaze you when one day you realize you spent a whole day not even thinking or caring about a cigarette. I remember when it happened.
This month on Feb 14th I celebrate 3 years not smoking. I can't tell you enough how glad I am that I stuck it out because I am home free and I am so happy I don't smoke and I don't want to smoke any more.
Please stay strong because you can kick this and you will be so proud and happy you did!! It will end.
Imagine this coming summer bieng outside in the fresh clean air doing things you love without that stinky cig being a part of your life any more. The smell of clean hair and fresh air is going to be awesome.
You are almost there, keep going and you never have to do this again because you will be free.
