My handy app tells me I've been a non-smoker for 10 hours, 55 minutes as I start writing this.
So far, it's been less horrendous than before. On the other hand, much of that time I was sleeping, and all of that time I've been fighting with a fairly severe sore throat. So, while I never thought I'd be happy to have a sore throat, it's a blessing for right now.
And if nothing else, I've been at work for 2 hours, 20 minutes without a cigarette. Even though the weather is beautiful (trigger). Even though I have phone calls to make (trigger). Even though I was overwhelmed and stressed nearly the moment I walked in the door (trigger). Even though I had coffee this morning (trigger).
You know what? It'll be nice when every.single.thing is no longer a trigger.
