I realize that it’s been awhile since I’ve given a Cold Turkey update. As of this very moment here are my stats:
- quit time: 1 month 1 week 10 hours 4 minutes
- money saved: $205.32
- cigarettes not smoked: 768
- days of life saved: 2 days 16 hours
I have moved onto Step Two of the patch system. I had some momentary confusion with the steps and how many weeks of each. This led to me buying Step Two a week earlier than recommended. I think it will be okay – if not I will just stay on Step Two a week longer.
The cravings have gotten easier and easier. Vicki posted about urges the other day and she really hit the nail on the head ….
It’s probably getting easier because I know it’s going to happen — I know that it will come, I know that I won’t give in — and it’s like a token appearance now. "Hi, I’m your urge, I know you don’t want to see me, but I can’t stop coming and just thought I’d try again" — all half-hearted like, and weakening.
go over there and give her a pat on the back!
