Hello Folks ... Newbie Alert

Hi Folks, Im Gaz from sunny Bilston West mids, ive been visiting this forum now over the last couple of weeks since i had my last smoke on March 31st, i went to bed that night and decided when i woke up that i wasnt going to smoke no more, and no i havnt :)

Im now on day 16 and very proud of myself indeed,26 years i was smoking at least 40 a day on most days maybe even more on stressfull days.

So far my experiences/problems have been quite mild, the 1st couple of days were very dizzy shall we say, but since then nothing too stressfull.

Using only will power determination and a inhalator as back up all seems to be ok.

My biggest regret is not doing it years ago :mad:

Anyway hello everyone ;)

I never set any dates, however it was on my mind to jack it in for a few weeks prior, some days more than others, then i thought its the 1st of April tomorrow and with that thought in my mind i woke up in the morning and even with my bacca packet on the side i just got up and ignored it.
