Christine,

The following words from your note are very promising:

"Went out and bought a
pack of cigarettes and
smoked one. It tasted
awful..."

You found them distasteful and didn't smoke the other nineteen cigarettes. Failure? You blew it? I think the opposite is true. You're beginning to reject cigarettes. You are tasting success now for the first time.

You have a few weeks more of physical addiction to conquer. At that point, you'll be engaged in the mindgame. Yesterday brought your first victory of the mind. Build on it!

Tom

P.S. What to do with the nineteen cigarettes? I like the idea of dropping them in a tin can of water, putting a lid on it, and then inhaling the nasty smell from it whenever you feel a strong urge oncoming.
