Hi Jane, I smoked between 20 - 30 per day, I smoked at least 7 in the first hour, the first one of the day was the hardest to get passed, but I really took a look at my COPD and how this was gonna take grip of me.

I bit the bullet and said " I am not gonna have one the now" and from that day to this I live with this rule. I havent stopped just " not having one the now " lol

Don't deprive cause you always want what you cant have lol

You can do it, it gets easier every day, more money smell better, and your lungs will enjoy it lol

take care

Hello Jacky nice to meet you,what a good way of approaching it i might have to be saying that myself if you dont mind?Already my nose is like an elephants trunk.:) I have to say that so far everything has been positive apart from the nightmares with the patches .So cant complain ,cant wait till i too have more time under my belt,you are doing brilliantly iwill be keeping you in my sights.Janexx

Reply

Hi Jane, I too had a lot of problems with the patches, sore red patches think i was allergic to them, so after about 2 weeks i couldn't stand it any more, and went cold turkey.

Please do use it if it works for you, on the 18th of Oct will be my year date, didn't think i could do it but, i have had a very supportive family and friends.

Go for it Jane, you can do it.

Well done and congratulations on becoming a Non Smoker. After a week the nicotine should be out of your system (unless you are taking it by another route :( ). As someone has said the craving only lasts for seconds - find something else to take your mind off and it will pass.

Think of all the gains! You smell better, breathe easier and your wallet or purse is fatter. What are the losses? I can't think of any, can you?

All the best

John

Two years ibet your buzzing with your success :) im the same everyone thought id smoke all the way to my grave,they are made up for me so far and fairly reserved not sure how to deal with me not wanting to rock the boat.the biggest thing to me is for my eldest son who im happy to say ahas now been such a different person, he knows my addiction was all powerful to me and that has stopped and he has reacted accordingly so good to be able to have conversations normally without him getting so uptight with me.To lead by example isuch a true statement. thankyou mahunamoon I willllllllllllll :) Janexx
