Six weeks of non smoking and I think I'm doing pretty bloody well. Haven't had a single cigarette so far and, after a few days of being grouchy right at the beginning, I have been dealing with it really well. I've been using something called Snus (a non combusted tobacco product) every time I want a cigarette, and within a couple of minutes the craving is gone with about as much reliability as it isn't gone with patches or gum. I was told by several people that this stuff really works but this is the first time I've really given it a proper try and, it really does. And, of course, I've saved over $200 bucks. So, this post is basically to say "Thanks" to all the folks who have sent me PMs etc to wish me luck and be supportive. If I fuck it up now it will be all down to me being an idiot.
