It helped, it calmed me down and took my cravings.
Physically I'm okay, mentally it's pretty often cold turkey.
It's a hell of an addiction. My mind still cries for nicotine pretty regularly.
I'm without Nicotine for a week now, my longest period in the past 20 years.
Many times I'm all edgy, nervous, unfocused; every other thought a cigarette. It stucks f..king deep.
