I haven't even been a smoker for an entire year. I just kinda picked it up last spring... and for the past 3 or so months I've desperately been trying to quit.

What happens is I'll be doing great-- for about a month. Then I'll fall into the "Oh, just one ciggarrette won't hurt..." It's all down hill from there.

I'm happy to say that I haven't smoked in two weeks-- and don't plan to ever smoke again. This time, I made a promise to my older brother that I would quit, and quit for good. I'm not sure if this method would work for anyone else, but my suggestion is to make a promise to the person you love and respect the most-- promise them that you'll quit smoking.

BUT-- I still struggle with "wanting" to smoke so badly, especially when I'm angered or frustrated. I do it all-- I chew (regular) gum, I meditate, I go on bike rides, etc... and these remedies do help, most of the time.

What I'm wondering is... will these cravings ever go away?!?!
