New today and day 11

:) Hello, I thought i would introduce myself. I quit on Tuesday 14th July. I had smoked for 25 years and smoked probably 1-2 packs a day. I have quit cold turkey and not using anything at all. I guess i should also say i that I am 12 weeks pregnant also. So me continuing to smoke is not really an issue.

This seems like a nice place - last week was tough, I thought i was going mental - this week is not so bad. Will be nice to come somewhere to rant, laugh - just move on from this disgusting dirty habit i have. x
