After a few hours I am ready to tear someone’s head off. Good luck to you. The longest I have ever gone without a cigarette was 3 months after my bypass surgery. Then I had one while I was changing the trany on the caravan at a friends who smoked.
I missed smoking the most when I am welding and waiting for things to cool down. It was kind of my timing tool. Or when I was on a long road trip, I would almost chain smoke.
As I sit here smoking another cigarette.
Again good luck, and don’t kill anyone. Steve

Good luck, Tony. What I found was that the urge to smoke comes at intervals, like waves. Whether you smoke, or whether you don't, the urge will go away. The longer you go without smoking, the fewer and less intense the urges become. (I've been quit since November of '88 and I still feel the urge, sometimes.)
Be careful. It's easy to substitute one bad habit for another, just looking for "something to do". I found that I drank way too much for a while, until I recognized what was going on.
I had a G/F that said that I just needed something else to do with my hands and something else to stick in my mouth. She was a great help in that regard.
Edit - I did tell my Rice Krispies to STFU a few times.

You guys kill me. Today has been tough, but I am steadfast. I spent the day out in my garage working on Fiero projects, and more than once reached for a cigarette. I actually reached, but there were none there. Just weird.
