Wow, 2 weeks today, it's been tough some days, but I made it here. I have been handling social situations well and I feel better every day. There have been some touch cravings to get through (I'm using Zyban to help with the quit), but still some very tough ones. I have a long commute from Fort Saskatchewan to Edmonton and use to easily have 3 cigarettes during the commute, always 2 for sure. This was the toughest part of breaking my habit. Lots of Hard candies in the car now is helping. I'm feeling positive for the future. Have a great week everyone!
