This is possibly my 100th quite attempt. I'm 25 and have been smoking since I was 16. I desperately don't want to reach the 10 year smoker milestone. Have a lovely son who is 2, who I don't want to set a bad example for (although I never smoke indoors or around him) and a lovely wife wh's also 25 (we're quitting together).
Vowed to quit 'for good' when I returned to work after Christmas in January, but soon relapsed. Have spent the past 6 weeks or so making various pathetic quit attempts that have lasted between an hour and a day.
Have quit before for 4 months using Paul McKenna's hypnosis CDs, but the CDs aren't having the same impact this time around. It was just so easy last time!
I was given a box of Nicorette Inhalators by a friend, so my wife and I are using these and they are so far working ok.
We tried to quit yesterday, but relapsed last night when our young son decided to throw the tantrum of his life in the middle of a supermarket and all the way home (ppor excuse I know!)
It's difficult quitting together, as there's double the potential for a relapse and we are usually too hung up on our own withdrawal sysmptoms to be very encouraging to eachother (how terrible!).
But we're not giving up on giving up as they say, so here we are again. Starting to feel a little pointless, but I'm clinging on to the fact that I've done this before, so I can do it again.
Good luck to all other quitters.
