Way to go on being smoke free for 41 days! You are getting the job done, my friend!
I quit cold turkey, too. Call me a masochist, but I was determined to face all major triggers head on pretty well right off the bat. So I kept my cigarettes where I could see them, and told myself I was choosing not to smoke them. And I hung out with two of my sisters who not only smoke, but smoke inside. And when they lit up, I told myself, be proud of yourself, because you are doing something amazing, and you are doing something that they are not prepared to do yet. And you are setting a good example and showing other smokers that it is indeed possible to quit.
So give yourself some mental pep talks as you go along on this journey. Because it is true. You are doing something absolutely remarkable. You are quitting smoking, and that is one heck of a challenge. You should be really, really proud of yourself for hanging in there. And remember, it will get easier over time.
