My urges remain high at about a 10. However, I find it's getting better, I don't crave for a smoke first thing in the morning. My sense of taste is better, I no longer cough nor do I weeze. I find that accepting the pain makes i easier to dismiss my urges. In the past i'd fight it; but more i fight, the more it fights back and i would cave. 1 cigarette turned into 2 etc... this would escalate, I'd buy the 1 telling myself that I'd give into the craving just once, but I'd find a way to justify the second pack. Hence my planned 'slip'. Instead of giving in, I scheduled it. My goal is that one day I will no longer stick to this scheduled date as i do in other parts of my life.
