Me too, Nick!!! Oh good old junkie thinking! I'm glad that "something is missing feeling" is pretty much gone. It seems to be getting easier and easier. Some days are easier than others, but I'm sooooo proud to be nicotine free. I'm also glad to not have to be constantly thinking about how I need to quit, how I hardly even liked it anymore, so "why do I even do it". You know those kind of feelings.

Sometimes, I make myself laugh my visualizing the internal conflict between the junkie and the non-smoker inside me. This visualization makes me laugh and usually takes my mind off of the urge.

I imagine the scene from "Liar, Liar" with Jim Carrey. The part with him trying to say the blue pen is another color. I see myself wrestling with a cigarette saying "smoke it smoke it." It works for me.

I just found this (and found it englightening) and thought it might help some folks who shall remain nameless.

I remember an anti-drug commercial from the early eighties that had the tagline: "nobody ever says "when I grow up, I wanna ba junkie!""

Just to be a contrarian, I used to say that. Guess what? It came true. I am a full fledged nicotine junkie. Fortunately, I am not an active junkie, have not been for four months, and never will be again.

"When it comes to addictive behavior and thought processes, the smoker is right up there with the cocaine or heroine addict. Especially in the early stages of quitting smoking do we tend to crave "Just One". Unfortunately, that is nothing but the mind of the addict rationalizing the next of many fixes."

What the heck is a "social smoker??????!!!!!" If I smoke one, I'm done for . May as well schedule lung removal, radiation & chemotherapy; buy a funeral plot.

I can't conceive of nicotine addiction being ANYTHING like being a social drinker. Only a few, small percent of people who enjoy social cocktails become hopelessly addicted alchoholics.

Seems to me that EVERYONE who smokes or chews becomes a nicotine addict very quickly! (I don't know the numbers. . . .)

Who knows about this????
