I gave up July 1st last year after being on 20-30 a day for 20 years. Was doing really well until a month ago, but then used stress as an excuse and had a cigarette. Could really really kick myself. Started smoking between 3-4 a day. Stopped again last Thursday and now finishing up day four.
It has been a really hard day. I recognise that I mostly want to smoke when I'm bored, but I really had forgotten how hard it was.
Very nice to be back reading all this though, had forgotten how comforting this is. About an hour ago I was going to go and buy a packet of fags, but reading this forum convinced me otherwise.
Day five, here I come!
