    Hi. I am here again. Ive been doing good so far. I am down to step 3 of the patch. I am back because today i have a craving. I had a dream about smoking and i was around a smoker. And i remembered what its like to put one in my mouth. Usually it doesnt bother me. I am 3 months smoke free .Feels like a long time and i just want to forget it but its still in my mind just learking around the corner i cant let my guard down yet. Its a rainy day and it hasnt rained for 2 months. I dont know if the rain triggered something. I am going to distract delay amd drink water . I am taking it hour by hour today. Heres to another smoke free day

    Hi chartippybum,

    Our minds really do work in interesting ways? It is a common symptom actually. Our minds like to revisit and review our memories of the past. The dreams will eventually stop. As with other withdrawals and cravings these will be behind you one day.

    It is so fantastic that you've kept a quit going like this chartippybum. It is an accomplishment.
    You can do it!

    Cheers,
    Lillian

    Thank you so much. This site has been amazing everyone has been supportive. I am having some difficult times with stress. I like that i can vent and find ways to cope without the smoke.

    Hi chartippybum,

    I can't believe you have been smoke free for 3 months now.  A huge congratulations to you!  You should be so proud of yourself.

    I hope you do something to celebrate this terrific milestone!
