Hi, I would just like to say to you (and any other potential quitters) I was a smoking cessation specialist for 10 years back in the UK, so if you need advice & guidance I can help and support you.
I would first of all make sure you do this holistically , balancing brain chemsitry is essential to experience few withdrawal symptoms, so multi vits/minerals are essential, lots of vit C and balancing blood sugar by eating little and often is a very good starting point, if you want to know about pharmocotherapy on offer also just ask

Since this site is founded on the concept of a 30 day trial, I thought I would come in here and post on day 30 of this just to round things out. Not sure if I'll post again in this thread or not, but I did want to kinda put some closure here.
At day 30 I can't remember when I last had a craving for a cig, even though there are small times here and there where I think about smoking a cigarette. At this point, though, I think the craving aspect is mostly nil, and I also think that the habit part of it is starting to level out too. I don't expect to smoke after or during certain instances that normally would've had me smoking (like after eating or before getting into my car). The jitters have leveled off and I"m back to normal on that front.
I think the chemicals are still a bit wonky because I'm still kind of emotional for no damn good reason. Last night I sobbed again. I don't know if it's the habit, if it's the changes I'm going through right now, or a smattering of all of it....but I'm one emotional mo fo right now.
The big thing I've been thinking about (and I'm considering making a thread about) is how identity is formed, how I've formed my own identity, and the gaps that I've left empty in my identity that occur like "holes" in me (or empty parts of me). In fact, the not-smoking thing has been an awareness raiser of that hole that I was filling with smoke...and, more accurately, filling with the role of SMOKER.
In any case, that's all discussion for perhaps another thread. At the end of day 30, I round out this thread and consider this matter to be mostly settled. IN a lot of ways it's kind of hard to believe that I've FINALLY managed to move beyond this aspect of my life because I never thought I would.
So, for as long as this lasts, I will be grateful for this time and things I've learned from this challenge.
