24 hours since I smoked

Hi everyone, this is my first attempt at quitting, have smoked for 15 years and im not even 30 yet! Myself and my boyfriend are quitting together, he has the gum, I'm on the patches. this morning was really hard work, have munched on a load of fruit and have to say the feeling of being anxious constantly has subsided. loving reading about everyone else and how they are getting on. I am really determined to do this!!!!!! Just hope the positivness stays with me!!!

Welcome and well done. You sound really up for this and having the support of your boyfriend will be good, although of course there are down sides to quitting together as well:eek:
