So I've determined this: Even after all nicotine craving should be long gone, I still have pangs of wanting a cigarette. What seems to be happening is that somehow my brain remembers nicotine craving well enough to generate the physical sensation of it, with an actual physiological response to the simulated craving.|

Re: Not to be discouraging or anythingq
Well, the handwriting was on the wall -- the cigars don't help, nor does getting drinky someplace where everyone else is smoking.
I'd encourage you to try again. Gives you fresher breath for chatting up the birds as it were.
I quit smoking 6 or 7 years ago [I can't remember :)] but whenever I see a cigarette being smoked in a movie I want to run out and have a puff. I have no intention of doing so, but the urge is still there for a brief moment.
Kudos to you for quitting!
A virtual attaboy. I know it's hard as hell to quit and stay that way, so I'm sending you positive thoughts. We love you and want you to stick around, breathing.
