i havent lit up since 1:30 in the afternoon yesterday. it is now almost 10:30 am here. not too much longer and it will have been a full 24 hours (and cant honestly say when/if ive ever gone that long aside from my pregnancies) anyway this morning i got through my usual routine pretty easily. im used to making my coffee and going right outside for a smoke. but i just had my coffee and went about the rest of my routine without a cigarette and it was much easier than expected. however after i ate breakfast i started craving one. so i tried to curb it by folding and putting away 2 loads of laundry and starting 2 more. ive dusted & vacuumed the living room, gave the girls a snack, cleaned the kitchen. my girls are going for a nap in half an hour so i was going to save the trip to the park for afterward. i have literally ran out of things to do to curb this craving!!! i keep reminding myself the health benefits of continued cessation.. and it works momentarily.. but my mind keeps reverting back to the image of me sitting on the porch with a cigarette in hand! btw, were out of cigs anyway but nothing is stopping me from buying more. ahhh its soo hard to quit cold turkey!!!

Have you tried yoga or mediitation, just anything that will keep your mind off the cravings. Never smoked, but I can imagine what it must be. GL.
