Hello everyone- so glad I found this site

Hello Everyone,
it is my first time here.
I quit smoking 13 days ago cold turkey. This is not my first quit... it has taken several attepts...they usually last 3 days and I relapse... the longest quit I had has been 16 days (that was this Feb).. I relapsed again for 1 day. Started my quit again the next day and here I am Day 13.
I want to quit for good this time. I want to live a long and healthy life.
I just turned 30 years old. I have been smoking for 7-8 years 5-7 cigarettes a day. While that might not be a lot of smoking i am ashamed to admit that I was really addicted.
I am now having some nasty withdrawal symptoms and cravings too once in a while
Hope everyryone is having a wonderful smoke free day

Must keep the anxiety under control. Anxiety is what made slip...everytime. Strage and ashamed to say...I did not have any anxiety when i was smoking.

Hi guys :)
day 24 today. not easy ..some conflits at work... lots of sneezing in the morning
lots of cravings...but not long ones
went to the doctor follow up appointment... doctor is an ex-smoker himself, so i am glad he understands a bit. He says symptoms can last for months and that i just have to be patient and stay quit
hugs for everyone
