I'm new so thought Id say hello & jot down why I'm quitting etc. It'll be nice to have it written down to look back at if I have a dark moment of weakness
I've smoked for 20 years gradually increasing from 10 to 20 a day. I have an aunt who has been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer which is so advanced they are not offering treatment. This has scared the life out of me as I always convinced myself I'd get a warning then I'd give up. Having researched this killer cancer I now know most people don't know they've got it until it's too late.
I quit on Monday 9th Feb 09 at 3.30 pm. Found some patches in the cupboard & went for it. Day 10 & has been ok. Finding it hard to break the habit, patches taking care of the withdrawals but keep thinking 'I'll have a fag' & then realise I'm not smoking no more :rolleyes: Loving the taste of food, realising how many of my clothes stink of fags, feeling sorry for all the smokers out in the cold chuffing. Glad to have found this forum as really feel the need to talk about it!
Congrats to everyone whose jacked it as well. Hopefully I can last the year, apparently that's when you've basically done it?
