I am new here and am currently on day 25 without nicotine. The recovery period so far has been enlightening and I am delighted to have stopped putting such a poisonous substance into by body. After reading all articles and ebooks on why quit, I now consider myself an educated ex smoker and could not imagine going back (still being very much aware however of the law of addiction and taking care not to forget my past).
Although I am now no longer having any strong/intense cravings, I am slightly puzzled at one thing that is happening. Cravings should only last 3 minutes and average, which I know we often presume to be greater in time. However, from about 2pm in the afternoon until early evening I seem to have a small but seemingly ever present craving feeling, which I would usually have associate with needing nicotine replenishment when I was a smoker. It seems after initial withdrawal a long time to be experiencing such a craving..so I was wondering if anyone has had a similar thing? This is by no means unbearable and will not lead me back to smoking but I am wondering when it will disappear. This must be psychological in nature, so I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on what could help me get past this?
