I am amazed that I haven't caved in before now. I am afraid to tell anyone in my family that I have gone cold turkey. I am afraid I will jinx it. The horrible cravings have subsided, and now I just want one at night before bed, and think about getting up and having one, or going to the store to buy some. The only reason I haven't slipped is because I got rid of every cigarette, cigarette butt in the yard, butts in the ashtrays in the cars...everywhere. I don't have any on hand. By the time I think about it enough to go get some the urge has passed. I don't want to fail. I don't want to be a smoker, or nicotine user, I don't want to look like I am sick or feel like I am sick, or end up like some of the people in the stories in the We Died Young section on Why Quit. I just don't want that for myself. Now I have to go brush my teeth, drink a glass of water and walk my dog so I don't think about smoking. Bye !!!!
