Hey guys and gals, I just found this place.
A little about me for those who like to know these things...
I'm 21 years of age
I have smoked cigarettes for around 4 years
This time last week I would smoke my way through 15 cigarettes per day
On night's out with friends I could see my way through a good 40 in a day/night
I've tried quitting before, although I think I failed becasue I realised I didn't really want to quit...which is not the case this time.
I've thrown all my cigarettes, cigarette papers, tobbaco pouches, ash trays, lighters, matches, all that stuff is out of my house and car.
I Also joined a gym which I was meaning to do anyway - hopefully to feel the burn of the 'smoker's lung' all the time to make me concious of what i've done to myself over the years! (and of coure hopefully to notice it decreasing!)
I'm going at it cold turkey, I've not smoked a cigarette for 24 hours and at the moment I feel pretty comfortable! (Many friends have quit today too, some of which are seemingly suffering badly even with patches and stuff)
I think tomorow at work may be a different story though, but we'll see.
I'm already loving the fact that for the first time in years I just brushed my teeth and my breath actually smells of mint now - and tastes like it too! - Sounds strange but it feels so good!
