First of all, congratulations for quitting!
I really like your perseverance through your quit it proves how much you are determined to remain smoke-free despite
the negative side of the withdrawal symptoms.
You're right in saying “What makes it so hard quit is that
its very very easy to find, and asking a stranger for one is socially
Keeping your motivation in mind will help you not to ask a
stranger for a cigarette, even if it's socially acceptable.
Withdrawal usually starts a few hours after you quit and may
peak in 2 or 3 days. You should begin to feel better after that. Some people
get through it quickly, while for others it can take longer. It may feel bad,
but it is seldom dangerous. Most symptoms will go away in a while but in the
meantime stay focused on your success because you are doing well so far.
How's everything going so far? I hope a bit better?
Of course, you can call a Smokers’ Helpline
