Welcome to this site, and a big congratulations on your 22 smoke free days! What an amazing accomplishment! I know it's not easy at all. You have to fight against intense cravings, change your routines, distract yourself, and deal with withdrawal symptoms, all while trying to get on with the day-to-day things in your life. It's a lot to deal with. But Judith, it is SO worth it. Trust me. I quit 14 months ago, and my life is so much better now. I feel better, I am breathing easier, I smell better, and I am no longer a slave to this addiction. These days, I do what I want, when I want. My addiction no longer rules what I decide to do, and when. You will start to enjoy a freedom that you never knew before.
Hang in there, Judith. If it hasn't already, it will start to get easier to cope very soon. And then you will start to really enjoy the benefits of being a non-smoker.
