I'm new to the forums and new(ish) to stopping smoking.
I stopped 2 years ago cold turkey for 8 months until I got drunk one night and started again! I was doing so well at the time and I didn't even miss it as I felt so much better.
Anyway, Tuesday is my first day. I think if I stop tomorrow then I'll have 8 hours without a cigarette by the time I wake up.
I'm 32 and have smoked for 17 years now. For a long time I was on 5-10 a day but over the last year it's up to 20 a day and someone recently commented that I 'Eat cigarette's' - when I light up they're gone in about 10 drags.
Why am I stopping? I hate cigarette's - they've killed my dad and my grandma so far. It's a fact that both would still be alive had they not smoked. My gran got lung cancer at 63 and died (a horrible way to go) and my dad had a heart attack (brought on by smoking) and died aged 56 last year whilst on holiday with my mum. He went to sleep and never woke up (I'm still in shock at the moment).
So, as much as I detest cigarette's I know it is going to be difficult getting past the first 3 weeks until I get to that place of neutrality (at least that's what it took last time).
I intend to be a regular poster and let you know exactly how I'm getting along.
Please introduce yourself and let me know what I can expect from tomorrow onwards..
