No Smoking Day

New Here

Hello Everyone

This Site Is Great, Really Gives You A Boost To Hear Everyones Stories And Know Your Not Alone.

Smoked 20 For 34 Years Cut Down To 10 Over Last 6 Months By Not Smoking In The House. Just Put On Patch 7 Drinking Lots Of Water And Orange Juice Not Been To Bad, Apart From Feeling Sick When I Put A Patch On, Now I Eat First And I Can't Sleep. This Might Sound Silly But I Put An Elastic Band On My Wrist And Flicked It While Telling Myself Why I Was Giving Up, Now If I Get Tempted I Flick It. It Worries Me When I'm At Work We Can't Smoke But We Can Go Outside, I Work Late In A Cab Office When People Are Not At They're Best (drunk) And It's Really Frustrating. I Coped Last Weekend And I Did Have A Couple Of Runs Ins, But Thats Where I'm Most Vunerable.
