Finally really truly quitting

So I'm in the process of quitting smoking, not only for my own health but also for my fertility. So far I am down to 2 smokes a day, not entirely quitting, but I'm getting there. I've noticed some changes so far:
1. I no longer "have" to have a cigarrette at 10:00, and 12:00 (after lunch), or in the evening after dinner and before bed. At first I was shoving pretzels down my throat to try to avoid the temptation, but it's slowly getting easier to get my mind off smoking.
2. I can smell the cigarette stench when I get into my car. It's not nice.
3. I haven't purchased a pack of smokes in about 2 weeks. Pretty weird. But very good, since Arkansas is about to raise the cigarette tax 50 cents.

So I've got a little farther to go, but i'm confident that soon I'll be smoke free. I'm all ready alcohol free, thankfully, that one was easy.

But sometimes I think "Man, what did I do when I wasn't smoking?"
