I was just browsing the web looking at anti smoking things to help me with my personal crusade with kicking the nasty habit and came across this website.
I have been on Nicotine patches now for the past 5 days and havent had a cig since my quit day last Thursday
I am 30 years old and have been smoking for roughly 14/15 years and smoke around 20 a day, I have tried numerous times to quit but never stopped for very long, I struggled badly with the "just one more" syndrom.
Last week after waking up with a sore throat (again) I finally decided enough was enough, I went down to the local stop smoking clinic and was prescribed patches to aid me.
I have just recently got married and we expecting our first baby in February (my wife gave up as soon as she found out and hasn't had another since), I really don't want my son growing up in a smoky environment even though i dont smoke in the house and I also want to be able to be there for when he reaches 30, the thought of dieing young has started to dawn on me as Ive just hit 30 and now is the time for me!
I really hope i succeed this time but I cant think of a better reason than having a little boy, I wanna be able to do everything with him (without stinking of cigs!!)
I have to admit its really hard to stop, sometimes I used to rush through my dinner just so I could have a cigarette after, I mean how sad is that!!! rushing through your meal just so I can suppress my hunger with a small piece of paper rolled up???? MENTAL!! the morning cig is also hard!
Anyway, just saying hi and those are my reasons!
