I can't believe I'm finally doing this! 24 years of constant nicotine addiction. I seem to be thinking about it all the time. Not necessarily craving but just thinking about all the moments in my day when a cigarette was the purpose. Cravings are strong, but I'm beginning to recognise them as a physical feeling. I had my first cup of tea in 24 years this morning without a smoke or two! It really was delicious. I think I drank tea and coffee during the day so I could enjoy my cigarette! Same with alcohol in the evening. I have had the weirdest thoughts though- I was thinking about cleaning out the kitchen pantry today and then decided against it because I couldn't bear not to have a cuppa and ciggie once the job was done-it was like a celebration for any little job! Anyway I haven't had nicotine for 4 days and I hope I don't have any ever again.
