New and feeling very positive

Hi all

I`ll tell you a bit about me - i`m 31 tomorrow and i`ve been smoking since i was 15. I have given up both times i was pregnant but silly me started again, so this is the first time i am giving up because i want to. I started taking champix on the 1st and i smoked my last fag yesterday at 10am only managed half of it it tasted disgusting so today is my first full day of being a non smoker and it feels awesome. At the moment i am finding it ok no cravings really just habit reached for my fags last night then had a little giggle at myself. So what i want to ask is does it get harder? I thought the 1st few days would be the worst but my mum seems to think it will get worse.

  • Well Done Fellow day oner!!!

    Hi claire,

    I'm on day one two, this is my third attempt, failed last year after 8 weeks and like you the last time I gave up for a long period of time was 9 years ago when I was expecting and silly me too started again.

    I wish you much success and I hope we both can kick this awful habit and have a long and happy smoke free life.

    Happy Birthday for tomorrow.
