    4 days in! Have been using the patch (step 1)

    and things are going surprisingly well. Haven't really craved at all, whereas without it I was craving, irritable and constantly thinking about smoking. Feeling so good, and really motivated. Also, it helps that it's -40 this week, haha :)

    Well heading off to bed soon

    and that means that I can officially check off Day number 5 since I quit tobacco. Today was a very easy day, I did not think about it much at all and I was very productive. Had a few moments where I wanted to lash out on people but I quickly realized that yelling was not the...

    I really need to stop and I will soon enough.  I'm coughing due to it!  I need being brave and put a stop to it!  Harder said then done and it's gotta be done.
