Quite a surprise I am here today, I have been suffering chest pains through smoking (I don't think I have had a heart attack or anything) since the beginning of the week last night was very painfull so this morning I started the patches was not planning to its a spur of the moment thing.
This is the second time of trying to quit got down to stage 3 of them last time I think if I remember rightly I did about 3-4months quit but after alot of stress and my hubby still smoking I cracked. Family life was not good teenager problems with my daughter arguments, I could not cope ended up seeing a councilor (sp?) If you read the few posts that I posted last time you will understand how hard I felt it.
Also the nurse at the doctors who was supporting me with the patches the first time I quit actually advised me to start smoking again because I was was not dealing very well with the quit. ( not very motivational)
My hubby started the patches yesterday due to himself being very weezy.
I am also trying to lose weight I know I am going to find it hard to control the two vices.
Heres hoping, as of today I have got cravings but it is dealable at the moment.
