I've been hanging around on here since Saturday when I made the decision to quit. Been smoking 15-20 a dat for 22 years and never tried before. I'd just started to worry about my health and was beginning to hate myself every time I lit up. I also work in a cancer hospital which really hits home sometimes. It also doesn't help having a 5 year old daughter and 6 year old neice who kept asking why I smoked when it kills you!! Wise kids eh?!
Anyway, I'm now on Day 3 and all I can think about is cigarettes. I'm on the strongest patches patches and also have a puff from time to time on an inhaler. I guess the reason I'm posting is that I'm finding it incredibly hard. Surprisingly, I'm not grouchy but I'm finding it difficult to think of anything else, and I am not sleeping really (removed patch before bedtime last night but still lay awake for hours).
I know this is the addiction but I'm just hoping it will get easier. I also know it's not going to be easy but I just wanted some encouragement - and to hear that it does get better. Also considering hypnotherapy - has anyone else tried this?
