1. Today is day one for me... again
It's going to be tough to make it though work. But I'll make it.

I'm growing tired it "trying" to quit, so I think this is the time.

3. I'm still okay at three months.
It's easier a lot more of the time now, but not always.

4. 3+ weeks here, and it DOES get better
I find myself thinking about smoking less and less, but it's still there, especially in the morning and after meals, and whenever I sit at this PC. But these cravings are more institutional memories than actual cravings, if that makes any sense. And they go away pretty quickly. I chew lots and lots of gum, the regular kind.

I hope you're making it, and I wish you continued good luck.

6. tommorrow will be 6 weeks for me
i'm very happpy to say that. but it hasn't been easy.
been staying in a bit too often, and the occasional hit of weed is kinda torturous.
my allergies have been awful and i don''t feel one bit healthier.
but it'll get better, the last week was the easiest ever.
