No Smoking Day

Hi, day 1 nearly over !!

Hi all, I had my last ciggie at 10.30pm last night and i am nearly through my first day :)

I have smoked 20 a day for the last 15 years or so with a 2 year break after having my kids and never really wanted to give up until recently, i dont know if it was hitting my 35th birthday that did it or if it was my kids moaning about the smell. All i know is I really want to quit.

I am going with the patches which i have tried before but obviously didnt want it that much and the anti smoking nurse weekly sessions for support. My other half has decided to quit too so we'll have each other to lean on (hopefully lol)

I came across this site last week when i was mentally preparing myself and thought it was great to read other quitters tips and advice, today has been relatively easy(ish), with the help of a stressball and lots of housework oh and my belief in the patches and myself, the hardest thing i have found today is the habit cravings, my first cup of tea with a ciggie,after breakfast ect...

Keep up the good work peeps, here's to tomorrow ;)
