Hang in there, Ted.

I quit cold turkey 12 years ago. It was maybe the hardest thing I ever did, but sooooooo worth it. The important thing for me was to hang on to the thought that “this too shall pass”. The first several days of physical withdrawal are tough, and then you move into the emotional withdrawal, which was even harder. For about three months, I just wanted to kill someone. Anyone… it didn’t matter. :-) But after that, it was like the greatest relief in the world to have that gorilla off my back! So just tough it out, knowing that there is a huge reward at the end of the struggle.
