Red face It 's so difficult!

I am a 30 year smoker unfortunetly and it will be 2 yrs on Nov. 28th since I quit now for the 2nd time in my life. The 1rst was for 4 1/2 years. It is so difficult though, and it seems to be getting harder. I keep wanting to smoke. I sometimes pick up a cig and put it to my lips..then I quickly realize I really don't want to smoke...that it is probably emotions needing to get out ...I am really not sure, but I feel like screaming. My chest feels such a craving. Does anyone else feel a craving in there chest? I pray to get thru it!

Re: It 's so difficult!

Yeah, I also get cravings in my throat and mouth! It's so weird because I get them really bad whenever it's scratchy or sore or I need to cough...it's like I crave that roughness that happens when you smoke--same thing with my chest; it's like I miss the pressure that used to be there. I also just miss the sharpness that nicotine lends me because I feel like I'm stuck in a fog and can't get anything done without it (i've noticed my ADD definitely gets worse).

This is disheartening though...2 yrs and you're still dying to smoke?! That sucks! Kudos to you for lasting this long!
