My official quit was 09/03/10, and I have to say that I think I did pretty good for my first real try, tho I did cave :( Had 2 on Sat, 2 on sun, 2 on mon, and then got in my car for work this morning and caved! I'm still proud that I could go all that time with smoking that little, esp since i was over a pack a day on Fri the 3rd. My biggest issue was that I found myself to be "spacey" and having difficulty staying focused on anything. The rest of the withdraw and the cravings were fairly easy for me, until my hubby smoked [and he did go outside, shut the door, etc.]. Tomorrow I start fresh, and armed with air freshener for the car that he is smoking in right now!
Any suggestions, advice on how to get around the apparent lack of concentration, or is that in my head? The psychological issues are the ones that most concern me at this point. Tomorrow I'm taking the e-cig and a pocket full of straws for the hand-to-mouth issues. The e-cig has to be better than all the crap in the real cigs!
Surround yourself with people who know your worth. You do not need too many people to be happy, just a few real ones who appreciate you for exactly who you are.
