newbie on day 3

Hello everyone, i am new to the forum i am Nikki and i'm 36 years old from west midlands.

I have tried to quit so many times and failed.

Relatives on my Dads side including my Dad have all died due to cancer in their 40's.

This still wasn't enough to make me want to quit.

Its only this time i have an even more reason to want to quit.

I am being investigated for a TIA (Mini Stroke).My Mum has had 2 so i'm high risk anyway :(

Every other time i have tried quitting i have still smoked a few a day when getting up and then going to bed.

This time i haven't.

I am so proud of myself :D

I am on Patches and using an Inhalator.

I was smoking 40 a day prior.
