So pleased with myself to be on day two - an achievement of gigantic proportions for me.
Started my quit yesterday with the help of hypnotherapy, today I've been to the stop smoking clinic at the surgery and was given max strength 24 hour patches - does anyone know how long the patches take to "kick in" please?
The smile came to me this morning, always a total addict for my early morning fags, I've been having these feelings of "I can't breathe" which is, I think a sort of panic attack type of thought and then my nico-monster, guess what he said to me? Maybe if you had a fag it would help you breathe more easily. I just laughed and said to myself, do you hear what you are saying? What utter bollix are you talking now?
I do feel a bit shaky, not that I will have a fag but in a purely physical sense and the Nurse said thats quite normal.
A friend rang me this morning to see how I'm getting on as she would like to quit too and she said, if you can do it anyone can - and I agreed.
Lovely to read your posts and well done to all of us, we are so great!
Lollipops, baby steps and now patches, how could I possibly fail?
