    Hi Katrina and welcome to the forum. Good luck on your quit. Are you going to smoke that one fag or is it just there as a safety net. I would suggest you bin it. Soak it in water and chuck it away. Every time my o/h was at home he would smoke in the kitchen and leave his half smoked roll ups in the ashtray so I just emptied them into the bin (usually on to something wet and soggy - yuk!). I started my quit on patches and inhalator, got to the 10 mg and, against the nurse's advice, stopped using them altogether, although got a prescription for 5 mg just in case. Anyway I finished the patches two weeks ago and never felt better.

    So I wish you luck and do come on here for support and a few laughs. Both of which there is plenty of.

  • Cravings? What cravings? If you tell yourself you're gonna get those horrid things then you WILL get them! Keep a positive mindset. I'm on day 11 and I feel great! No cravings at all. Hell, I don't even want a ciggie in the slightest.

    You can do this!!

  • Hi Jan thank you for your kind words of encouragement ...seems like a really good place this forum ! and i have to admit putting my final fag in something really soggy and nasty does sound appealing ... in fact im going to do it now, Thanks xxxxx

    You are welcome - did you do it? Did it make you feel good. I know it gave me a sense of achievement in a way.

  • hey Katrina

    How is it going? I remember how my first step was the hardest. It is true that it is a scary prospect but it does get easier and easier.

    best wishes x
