Thanks again for all the words of support everybody as given me. I stopped on Monday and have made it to Wednesday, day three without a cig. I will admit this as not been easy. Yesterday I found quite tough as I have this morning. I find it difficult when I wake up to not just automatically reach out and light up a cig. It happened yesterday and happened this morning, the first cig is the one to avoid, I guess.The craving is bad in the morning.
Yesterday though I started to experience some physical effects of my stopping smoking. I am not sure if this is the norm but my head started to pound last night, not a head ache but more of a rush of blood. During the afternoon I started to cough up stuff (horrible) and my throat is really sore this morning.
I am going to do this, I know it would be ever so easy to kid myself and just have one. If I do that, I will have failed. So today I am starting on the positive, I have my patch on and we are heading off for a long walk.
Once again thank you for your support, thank you for taking the time to read.
