I made it almost 24 hours yesterday. Bought some of the gum and was chewing like mad, but by 8:00 last night, I couldn't stand myself. Went out and bought a pack of cigarettes and smoked one. It tasted awful -- but my mood was better and I was much less stressed.

HELP!!! How do I get beyond this? I am so mad at myself for giving in. And now, I have 19 cigarettes that are singing my name.

What do I do from here? I really need your input. Just knowing you guys are out there is great. Most of my friends smoke, so I think part of me is worried about what is going to happen to my "life" when I quit.

Did any of you go through those "Smokenders" or whatever they're called? I'm not sure how to beat the physical craving and the psychological craving at the same time.

At this point, I'll listen to any advice you have.

Christine
