First time on this site

Hi all...I was introduced to this site by a friend. I am on my 37th day (quit date 28th September) of non smoking and doing good. I am on clear 25mg 16hour clear patches and the occasional microtab but now dont bother with the microtabs. I work from home so it has been difficult on my own to give up. I joined a NHS non smoking group in Bristol with like-minded people and since then never looked back. My determination is my family and especially my 6 year old who wants me to stop. What a great incentive. I also realised that I was spending about £2000 a year which is ridiculous. Started buying things for myself now with the money I have saved. Why didnt I dod this earlier. Oh yeah also go to the gym 3 times a week. I thought being healthy outside as well as in will be another great incentive. Sorry for the long intro.

    Below is my standard welcome and advice post which I try and give all new members I realise that some of it you'll already know or have read but you may still find it helpful

    Welcome to the forum and well done on the decision to quit possibly one of the most important you will ever make and you will be losing nothing but you will regain control of your life and that has to be good

    You will find all the help and support you need on here as we all help each other just like a family we are here for you every step of the way cheering the good days and sympathising with the bad but the good far outweigh the bad

    Yea It's amazing how much money can be saved. I realised I was spending £80 a week cos I was a very heavy smoker on something I rarely , if ever enjoyed.Madness!
