Just found you, on day 5

Just found this site, thought I would join, whatever help and support I can get, (and maybe give), I'd be greatfullfor.

Last fag was Sunday evening 3rd February.I'm using the gum, which I'm finding is really working for me. I'm using about 6 - 8 pieces a day of the 2mg type.

I'm doing ok during the mornings and afternoons, but the evening are the killer for me. It was just a ritual, get the wee woman to bed, relax, glass of wine in one hand, fag in the other and out the back for about 1,2 maybe 3 fags in a row.

I know I can do it because I have given up for 5 years previously, so I'm just taking it a day at a time, and am feeling quite optomistic.

Funny side affect of the gum, for about the first minute or so after taking it I am having hic ups. Strange!

    I still enjoy my wine in fact to be honest, I can now taste my wine :D

    Unfortunatley it means I have to spash out on marginly better wine :rolleyes:

    I can coil up on the sofa with my wine now and not have to keep getting up and freezing myself for a ciggie I like that :D
