So it's been 6 days now since I quit smoking. I'm still having moments of sheer terror where I just KNOW if someone offered me a smoke I'd rip it out of their hands, light it with a flamethrower, and inhale any smoke byproducts that might be generated by the process. But, those moments are starting to be fewer and further in between.
The other thing that's helping is I've started working out again, using a trainer once a week. I'm tired and sore this morning, but it's that good kind of sore that I vaguely remember from my high school athletics days. I'll probably never get back into that level of conditioning but I'd settle for reasonably fit.
