Friday was the two week mark in my quitting smoking efforts. The past four days or so have been among the most difficult so far. I really don’t know why — nothing is all that different about these past days than any others. The weather has been spring like, so yard work has commenced – perhaps that is part of it. Cigarette breaks were an integral part of yard work. I am still taking breaks – even knitting breaks! – but it’s not the same. Anyway, it is what it is and these last few have been hard. Not hard enough to break my resolve, but hard nonetheless.
