No Smoking Day

Loony Lunar Month coming to a close!

So, tonight at 11:30 will see the completion of 4 weeks - which apparently is a lunar month. What a 4 weeks it has been but I reach the other of it a healther and prouder person.

I took the patch off on Friday night at 11:30pm and by tomorrow morning - I will be nicotine free in my body - that is a lovely thought. I am thinking that the month on the patches will have helped me ease the physicological barrier - whilst by tomorrow - the physical withdrawal should be coming to an end. It hasn't been easy coming off the patches and probably was a slightly mad thing to do - but its worth it knowing that the drug will be out of my body.

Hope everyone is good and thanks to everyone for their advise!

Good going Chris

Way to go Team '78

Having done the coming off NRT thing myself recently I know how satisfying it is to know that there is no nicotine in your system.

From here in its a case of getting used to being a non-smoker, and staying strong.

All the best



Just some advice/observations for Chris and all other new quitters - when all of us quit smoking, of course we are all going to notice that something is missing. Occasionally some people go into a stage of 'mourning' their old friend the cigarette, but just know that the psychological barrier is just that - in the mind. The past six months have been flabbergasting for me... just today i met my sister at her place of work for coffee, she went outside for a smoke and i stood with her and then headed back to my own office. Only halfway back to my own office did i even realise what had happened. I stood there completely as a non-smoker. A total shock to the system. I couldn't even fully recall her having a cigarette in her hand - only because i was recalling a conversation in my head did i even take it on board. Now THAT is a successful quit.

So just be reminded and let me reinforce - this too shall pass. And i hope it's as quick for everyone else as it was for me. ;):D


Wow Chris, you have my admiration and congratulations. You sound really confident and happy in your quit wtg!:D
