Don't really know how to address the forum as it's the first time I've posted on here. I've now been quit for 12 days. I was admitted to hospital with severe chest pains 13 days ago which really scared me. Anyway turns out it was just a muscualr injury to the chest wall but made me think seriously about what the future would hold if I kept smoking. I'm 24 years old and have smoked for 7 years approx 7-10 per day averaged out (probably more)
I Guess I thought I was untouchable for my age and that nothing would happen to me but if what happened on that Thursday is anywhere near the pain of angina/lung disease or any other smoking related illness then it really has opened my eyes to what smoking and the consequences. So why am I still here craving a cigarette thinking it's ok Mark only 1 more then I will quit!
First day back at work today and feeling really stressed. I guess I'm just writing this to help the cravings go and remind myself of why I'm quitting so well done to everyone that's still keeping themselves smoke free. It's a real encourangement to see people with such a great determination to get through; I just hope I can keep up.
Anyway the cravings relented slightly so I'm off to stuff my face with some sugary thing to finish the craving off.
Keep up the good work guys
