72 hours quit!!

72 HOURS, COMPLETELY SMOKE FREE!!!
I have never been able to get past the 48 hours without a puff here and there. I can honestly say, I have not touched a cigarette since Thursday morning at 8:30 am! I'm okay so far on real cravings.
Thank you all for your encouragement. If I hadn't had you guys to feel accountable to, I don't think I would have made it through, especially yesterday I found my new addiction though, orange tic tacs I used to love these things and got a pack of them yesterday. They are only 60 calories for the container too. Not too bad

Thank you TATTRAT!!
I really haven't had a craving yet this morning at all. Have not had a Commit today so far. I am having a stupid migraine though, or at least, one is coming on. I get the auras before and I'm floating a little as I do before it hits. I can handle that though. Advil is kicking in and helps.
I think my system is still going through shock though. LOL

Awesome job, tg! Now that you're past the 72 hour mark, the nicotine is out of your system so the chemical withdrawal will fade. You'll be feeling better and healthier every day--yea! Keep up the great work. We're cheering you on!
