After smoking 30 cigarettes a day for 11 years, I have now been a non smoker for 23 days! I am incredibly proud of myself. However, I'm not going to lie, I'm finding its getting more difficult, instead of easier. It was getting easier and easier for the first week or so then I found the desire for nicotine stayed the same and just isnt letting up. Please tell me I won't feel like this forever ? Or is it something you need to learn to live with. I know that I do not want to be a smoker. Nothing will ever make me go back and I know this. So why do I feel this 'empty' feeling when I'm so happy that I'm finally free of nicotine addiction?
