I am new to the forum and would like to introduce myself.
I am Nicki and I am 42 years old. A mom of 2 boys and married to John. We moved from the UK to Spain 7 years ago.
I am now on day 12 of giving up smoking. I am having a bad day, that is why I have been looking on the internet for help in staying strong, I hope I have found it here
I have been smoking on and off since I was 15 yrs old I gave up before in Jan 2000 and lasted 5 years. I know, why oh why did I start again. I didnt even crave cigs anymore.
By then I was living in Spain and it is a very relaxed attitude to smoking. EVERYONE smokes here. Few party's, BBQ's, Fiesta etc and ' oh just one wont hurt' and soon enough back to smoking again. :mad:
I had Flu 12 days ago and didnt get out of bed for 3 days so I thought this is a good chance to stop again.
I worry about my kids being left without a mom if I don't stop soon. I don't want them to think smoking is OK either.
Today seems to have been hard so far. I am really trying not to cave in. I wont as nearly 2 weeks now and I have done it before so know I can do it again.
We are also thinking of moving back to the UK next year and I know I can't afford to smoke there if we do!
Anyhow, thanks for listening.
