First Attempt

Hi im new to the forum and quitting.

Had my Final rollup at 10pm last night, i visited the Stop Smoking nurse at my GP, (she was very helpful and an ex smoker her self)

I have been given 15mg patches and 4mg Gum, have a patch on and tried one gum, so far so good, "I wont smoke today" is all thats in my head.

Each time i have had the erge today i have given my daughters a nice big cuddle. seems to work.

I keep getting a tingling feeling in my legs and feet? is this common.

Thanks for the great site, have read the recommended pages/sites

  • Hi, cant add much more than Marg, but, I got burning feet! Well not on fire, but really hot. Put it down to my circulation returning to normal. If it continues and you are worried check it out at the docs, though I suspect its smoking related. xxxx

    Yeah, I noticed that. I used to get up a hell of lot quicker in the bad old days. Find I am much more tempted to a bit of lay in at the weekends rather than be straight up for the coffee and fag:D
