Hi all.My first day on here but it is actually day 26 of no smoking.
My story...I've smoked for 30 years as few as 5 a day to 30 a day but only once gave up for 4 days.
About 4 weeks ago I got the dreaded man flu and it was embarrasing.I coughed and spluttered my way through a meeting with a fairly important customer.I took benelin and paracetomol to clear the cold which went after about a week.
I have had the usual smokers cough for a few years now and like most people always said I would quit one day,but now realised I need to quit before I get something really nasty.Anyway I couldn't bear the thought of never having a ciggie again so I just take it day. So on day one (14 Jan 2009) I started with NRT lozenges and have been using them since,about 5 a day.
So far so good but as I am writing this I could murder a cig.I still have the cough but not as bad and keep thinking why isnt it going which is what brought me to this site really.
My worst time is when I have a few beers I'm so tempted to just have one cig with a mate of mine but so far have resisted.I can't say my taste has improved other than I'm not sure I like the taste of beer anymore (strange) but I will carry on and post again even if I falter,which is always a possibility.
Anway enough of my inane drivveling I'm off for a lozenge.
