I am still having a difficult time. I have stopped smoking on 12/20/07, but am still having a very hard time. Certain triggers keep rearing their ugly head and my crave generator starts roaring to life. From everything I have read I thought that once you successfully encountered a certain event or trigger more than once you would not have the crave again. This doesn't work for me. I know it is all psychological at this point, but it doesn't seem to be getting better.
Does anyone else out there in the same stage of their quit feel similar to the way I do? I keep reading all these posts from members who say how great they feel and that they hardly have any craves any more. I seem to have craves and withdrawal pangs the entire day. Do I have to live the rest of my life this way? I keep thinking that it will get better, but every day is the same. Am I doing something wrong?
I am trying so hard and am determined to hang onto this quit. I never want to go through this agony again. I only want to see some light at the end of the tunnel. I keep thinking that tomorrow will be better, and maybe in time it will be. But the question is HOW MUCH TIME.
I would appreciate your advice
