Well after having given up smoking for 10 years (yes ten years!) and starting again, giving up for 8 years and starting again and having now been smoking for the past 5 years I have finally decided I need to quit once and for all. I've done patches, cold turkey and read the Alan Carr book so why do I find the need to go back to the dreaded weed. I am a very fit 60 year old female who goes to the gym 5 times a week and swims regularly and then who comes out of the gym and lights a fag! Deep down I have enjoyed a cigarette but like most people can't leave it at one and soon one becomes two and then a full packet of 10.
This morning stuck my patch on. If I am totally honest I would have given anything for my first ciggie of the day but feel quite proud I have resisted it. At "smoke break" today in the office I am going to keep myself busy - the danger time will be when I get home this evening and have to resist my evening fag. Any on line support will be greatly appreciated.
