This will be my 4th attempt. I smoke about half a pack a day. I have strong thoughts about quitting that consume my thoughts. I crave to quit smoking just as much as I crave to smoke! So I told myself January 2nd is the day! I started the patch. I still find myself smoking, just not AS MUCH as I was before. I find with me I don't "crave" as much as it has become a "habit" of going out on my work breaks, or just needing that minute or two to myself to decompress. I also am hugely afraid of gaining weight when I finally manage to quit. I have taken steps to ensure I am eating healthy snacks rather then junk food but its definitely still a work in progress. All I wanna do is quit but it is very hard.
