Well, it's been a full week since I last had a cigarette. I thought it would get easier as the days go by, but the cravings are still there. I used to be a "stress smoker", meaing, when things got tough, or didn't go right, or when I got frustrated, the first thing I grabbed was a smoke..I am sorely finding out that I need some new ways of coping with stress, which unfortunately my life is full of at the moment. Of course I pray and try to keep my eyes soley on God despite the way things look around me.. However, I still want that cigarette! I've been told over and over cravings pass after 3-5 minutes. Well, I get past the 5 minutes, and 30 minutes later.. bam! The cravings are there again..so, I occupy myself till the craving passes and sure enough.. they're back again.. If it were possible, I would love to be put into a deep sleep for about 3 weeks and wake up completely unaddicted.. I could use the sleep that's for sure! There has got to be a time when the cravings stop.. I just hope that it's soon!
