day 1 again & strangely im feeling ok!!!

:)yeah im here on day one i have got my 21mg patch stuck to my arm since 7.40am this morning at first i thought i want a fag!!! but after about half n hour i felt & still feel quite good apart from nauseous.... i did the school run, i spoke to people, i havent changed into a monster & at to hide away from everything & everybody of which i usually feel on previous quit attempts ...i am amazed at how good at feel, i do know it is very early in the quit but maybe coz i do feel sick i really have no urge for a fag or the patch it doing a very good job on my urges!!! - i am chewing normal gum too just to relieve the habit a bit like after something to eat etc..... i havent actually told everyone about quit..just close family - only because i look at it has a personal crusade & to tell the world at such an early stage just puts the pressure on .. for me personally.

The world will be told when im ready ..............but for now im just not smoking for today...
