Hi everyone, have read a lot of the posts and info in the links on here as I'm giving up smoking tomorrow with the help of hypnotherapy.
I must say that I admire so much the honesty and the courage of posters, your posts are inspirational.
I also have an appointment with the nhs stop smoking clinic on Tuesday. Just hope it will work ok for me as I have to do it for health reasons.
I've had to wait 10 days for the hypnotherapy appointment and so have been trying to cut down as much as I can. Reading through the psychology of addiction links I now realise that I've been in mild nicotine withdrawal for all that time. That probably explains some of the depression I'm feeling at the moment, which is most unusual for me.
I've smoked since I was 12 and am now 63. If I want to be 64 I have to stop!
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all, with very best wishes to everyone, Vivienne
