Hey everyone - just popping in to celebrate my 2 week quit milestone! How are all the other newbies doing? I've noticed a big drop in cravings  this week and am now working hard to fill my time (especially in the evenings) so I don't think about smoking! Tonight I'm trying an interval training class at the gym - it'll be a bit of a slog but I'll be so pooped by the end, I'm sure I'll just want to come home to a warm shower and nice relaxing cup of tea afterwards ;-)

    Congratulations, Em!  Thank you for popping in to share with us.  That is great that you have noticed a significant drop in cravings, that should be a huge incentive to keep pushing forward.  Smoking took up way too much of our time and yes, we now have to find other ways to fill it.  The exercise class is a great idea because you will be treating your body with kindness.  Keep up the great work!  ~QuitCoach Stacey
