      If you can do 4 days - you can do the rest of your life. Go for it. big_smile

      It's not tough if you really want it, fluffy!  You DO need three days away from anyone you care about though because as you come off the nicotine you're gonna be a real b*tch.  I know i was a real @sshole when i was quitting!

      I quit years ago! You're smart to quit, just take one day at a time. You might try replacing that vice with another, like kissing!

      If you have a bathtub, run yourself a bath as hot as you can stand it. Put in one cup of vinegar and one cup of salt (sea salt's best if you have it, otherwise table salt is fine).

      Soak in it until you're all wrinkly and the water is cool.

      This will help remove nicotine (and other toxins) from your body, and will be a relaxing soak. It should help the cravings.

      You can do it!

        Is this one method of detoxifying your body? I've been interested in the whole detox notion.

    Wow, I did not know you are quitting. Best of luck! It's hard, but definitely doable, I don't smoke for several years already - after 35 plus years of heavy smoking. smile

    Hang in there! After a while it will feel "normal" not to smoke. I've been smoke-free since January 1st and I can honestly say I feel a lot better. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to quit and went back, but I believe every effort to break the habit increases the chances of finally doing it once and for all!
