New to the forum, hiya! -Finishing week 3

Hi folks,

I'm new to this forum, and will soon have quit smoking for 3 weeks (tomorrow). However, I haven't gone cold turkey, or used NRT or pills (huh?). I used Swedish Snus, a smokeless oral tobacco, which has been very helpful in the interim, but I am quitting it today in favour of 4mg nicotine gum (I was smoking about 25 a day, and you get a hell of a lot of nicotine from a portion of snus). Now I know that tobacco is behind me, in ALL forms, a kind of reassessment of the perception I have of myself is taking place, of a healthy person, not a slave to a chemical. I'm even thinking of improving my diet, and taking exercise.

I hope I can make some friends here, perhaps encourage a few of you to achieve life-changing goals, and get some support myself. :)
