You know, it depends where you go. I have heard some people say the same thing when travelling. But when I travel, I find just the opposite. Hardly anyone smokes. Seriously. I was the only oddball who did, and quite frankly I felt like a loser. I had to find a place where I was allowed to smoke, which wasn't always easy. I had to walk far away, and I was completely alone. And what a pain, because one cigarette, as you know, is never enough. I had to constantly be on the lookout for another place to go. Geez, I don't miss those days, that's for sure.
Kit, right now you are going through the withdrawal blues. It's awful, and it's discouraging. But please, please, please, hang in there. Remember why you wanted to quit in the first place. Think of all the bad things about smoking. And look around at how the world has changed. There are far more non-smokers than smokers now, and people are quitting in record numbers. There are very good reasons for that. Don't let this addiction lure you back.
You have 10, very hard earned days under your belt. Don't let your struggle be in vain. Keep pushing through. It WILL get better, kit. But right now you're still in the thick of it. Try to keep busy. Indulge yourself. Cry, punch a pillow, go for a walk, have some wonderful take out food. Do anything you can think of to keep yourself on track.
I have been trying to come onto this site daily so I can support you, because I really believe this is your time to quit, and I will do anything I can to help you achieve your goal. I am rooting for you, kit. Don't give up. We are all here for you.
