It's great that you are going to try quitting again. Each time you try you learn something. At this point, you have a better idea of what to expect. And you know that your weak time is about 3 weeks. So try to find your passion, or just plan to keep yourself really, really busy! Wash those clothes, brush your teeth, and enjoy the nice clean smell of being a non-smoker.
You know, I ran into a dear friend of mine at work who I rarely see these days. She had just come from having a smoke outside. And I have to say, I found myself stepping away from her, because she just reeked of smoke. That was me my whole life, and the thought makes me cringe. It is such a relief not having to worry about stinking of smoke anymore. That was a tremendous weight I got off my shoulders.
You have the inner strength to do this, Franny. I love your mantra. You are a strong non-smoker. Keep telling yourself that, and keep giving yourself little rewards. This is your moment to shine. Believe in yourself.
