Wow, having read all the support on this forum from this morning, i decided i ought to sign up and post to say hi...it will at least give me more of a focus
well...im 21 have been at least a 10 a day smoker since i was about 14, my hubby to be (in may 2010) doesnt smoke and hated me smoking...so i have been a secret smoker from him for a couple of years-only getting away with a fag infront of him when we are out drinking...the rest of the time i sneak out whilst watching tv when hes up on the pc!!!
my family also dont know i smoke, mum dad and brother...my dad smokes and they caught me when i was younger, but i told them i quit and hid it ever since! now i live with just my hubby to be, i dont have to hide from them as i only have them if i know theres no chance of getting caught lol!
anyway after many failed attempts, i decided on saturday 22nd august i want to quit...
day 5, no lapses, no cravings to be honest...i really must say up to now i have found it quite easy. i used a patch (16 hr ones) for 3 days and have gone cold turkey now (although have patches and gum in bag for emergencies!!) my main downfall up to now is eating...and eating a lot! im dieting as already have my wedding dress, and it fits just right, but this week i've eaten soooo many biscuits lol, need to get the carrot sticks out!!
anyway just thought i'd say hi and im sure im going to find it much tougher once the poison of alcohol comes into play at the weekend!!! xxx
