I started smoking when I was 19. About 8 years ago I gave up from 60 a day (didn't work at a time and had lots of time on my hand). I gave up cold turkey. I then started about 2 years ago again and was on 20 a day. I gave up smoking last October. Unfortunately, I couldn't help myself and started smoking again back in April (lots of stress).
I do find it extremely hard to think of myself of never smoking again. I really love it. I have this type of personality that if I do something I'll do it proper and that includes smoking. The problem for me is that evertime I give up it get's harder and harder.
When you suffer from withdrawel symptoms you forget all the good reasons why you want to give up (Husband and I are thinking of starting a family later on in the year). I get very short with people when I want a fag and it doesn't help at work.
So, I want to give up tomorrow. I don't know if this is too short a notice to prepare myself mentally for it. Wouldn't mind another week of smoking but then I want to get the first 3 days out of the way. They are the worst for me and I tend to sleep a lot during this time.
Don't really have any questions but just needed to write things down. So if anyone is out there and wants to say hello....
