New boy here, just found this forum, my last ciggie was on 22 August.
I began smoking when I started work at the age of 16, 24 years later and 20/30 B&H a day worse off, I stopped at last!
I am using patches, Niquitin, and to be honest they work really well. I get a craving every now and then but I have learnt to think of something else and the craving passes.
I hope that I can kick the cigs for good this time, I did try quitting 2 years ago but I used to sneak the odd one every now and then, so as soon as I got big pressure at work, I was straight back up to 20 a day.
Only thing I have got to watch is weight gain. Since I stopped smoking, I seem to have less energy? I used to go to the gym every day (I used to smoke 2 cigs before I went in :)), but I now don't have the energy.
Anyone else suffered this?
