Three weeks ago, August 31, I had my last cigarette.
I went cold turkey, no vape, gum, patch, whatever.
I feel like I’m doing okay with it, but I still get major cravings, like I’m having right now. I’m going grocery shopping today, and I probably will pick up a bag of Jolly Ranchers, or some sort of hard candy to pop in my mouth when I’m feeling a craving, satisfy some of that oral fixation.
I estimate I’ve saved about $200 on cigarettes so far, my main source of motivation. I’ve been spending around $300/month on cigarettes. I’ve cut back on alcohol, too, also to save money.
