It's just over a month now since I have had a cigarette. My daily cravings are about gone or very manageable if one decides to pop up. I usually go to the bars on weekends and this is where things get difficult. I opted to not go out for the first two weekends because I knew I would set myself up for disaster.

The last two weekends I went out drinking. My cravings are much more intense than when I'm sober but I am able to fight them. Any other quitters out there remember how long it took for the craving to subside when drinking?

Hey sharp,

The cravings will subside no matter what you are doing, every single one that you fight and every day that you remain smoke free inches you closer and closer to the point where you will wonder what the hell you smoked for

Lots of folks don't drink alcohol or coffee or other trigger-ous things until they are good and comfy with their quit

Lots of folks do the opposite and encourage trigger-ous things so they can be confronted head on and dealt with immediately

Just pick which works for you

AND keep going.

Congrats, you and everyone who is succeeding give me hope. I am in the middle of day 5 and as expected there have been cravings but I am working thru them

Too bad you are not in Oregon or Washington as the Bars are smoke free

Keep it up you are an inspiration
