Thanks for the advice and support! I got the cool mint... It all seems to taste terrible. On the other hand its a good reminder of what smoking does to you.
So far so good. 48 hours. And counting.
It may be a complete illusion, but I do think the gum is allowing me control things a little better. Odd, or maybe its just me controlling me. Now there's a thought!

says: Congratulations. You are doing great. I haven't smoked now for 3 years and I know that I never can because I am addicted. I have friends that can smoke socially and never anywhere else. Not me. Keep up the great work. You really seemed to nail it on the head with all of the reasons that you smoke. I have a similar problem with my addiction.
