Hiya all, sorry i won't post in here much as only found these forums once i got to week 3 of which today is part of that week.
To anyone just starting out, do exactly as i did. carry a pen in your hand and in those moments when your at work and your at your usual danger moment, go find someone at work who you've not spoken much to in recent weeks but you get along well with and just say hi Pass the moment with friendly banter, and hope that your mini-craving passes soon. AND THEY DO!!!
I've been using the niquitinCQ patches to replace my 20 a day habit and although i have been waking up a bit in the night 'wide awake' or having the odd very lucid dream.. even 'omg' a dream about smoking.. i figured ahh this is all just part of quitting, and no way am i going to let this beat me. Yes i've quit twice before and have been gutted twice for starting again.. but you know? this time, i've got whole new reasons for quitting, and i'm quitting for me this time.
I wish you all the very best of luck, and hope you get through your first 2 weeks as easy as i have this time. You'll get 'moments' of cravings, of course you will, but treat them just as you would a baby.. use distraction techniques.. it works.. it has for me anyway, and when that don't work, come back on here and tell us lot. From what i've seen so far.. folk on here are all in the same boat, we all want to succeed, and we will. Its just a day at a time, and resisting.
Heres to us eh!!!!
