Alright my quit meter clicked over to 5 days just half an hour ago. It really has gone quite well. I think it was more difficult having the extreme anxiety about my smoking (every hour of the day) compared to the occasional crave. I go to sleep at night without fretting my habit (worrying about dying before my child is grown). I was healthy except for this stupid habit. Now I do my Yoga without feeling like a hypocrite. I no longer hide to smoke (closet smoker for years) and feel as if I can improve myself. Joel's tips and advice have been lifesaving for me. I do honestly embrace the withdrawal, feeling as if I am strangling that snake that has had a hold of me for years. Only regret is that I should have done this sooner. I know I am not above it, but will fight hard to keep this quit. I know that I am a puff away from a pack a day and I will NOT let that happen.
