Hello!! I'm Dan i've been smoking since i was 15 im now 20.
The last couple of years the number i smoke has slowly creeped up to a packet of 20 a day. Getting out of breath walking up the stairs at my age was the final straw!
I've tried many times to stop in the past with no success.. never made it past day 1 :eek:
I have tried the patches, lozenges and the inhaler again with no success..
So last Tuesday i went to see my doctor and hes prescribed me Zyban.
After a bit of reading up on it i was a bit reluctant to take it, luckily i've had non of the bad side effects a lot of people have had.
I quit yesterday at 8.45am after taking Zyban for a week.
Day 1 - I felt fine no problem at all maybe because i had that 1st cig of the day to get me through??
Day 2 - Missed the morning cig but no real craving for it.
Kept busy in work and i've not wanted one at all, again missed going for one but never really needing one.
I'm now home and get the occasional craving and that feeling in my chest that tells me i need a cig but a few deep breaths and its gone.
I'm feeling confident this time!
I know it's early days but i know this is it!
I've found reading a lot helps too and having a good rant seems to work as well
Bring on Day 3!!
