Well got to 21 days on CT Hypno tape and willpower not bad seeing that I promised myself that I would give up by the time I hit the big 50 on 10.02.10.
I feel the last 3 weeks has been like 3 months I read somewhere that people get time distortion when giving up.
Even though the nicotine has gone cravings still come and go some are very strong still, I will have to keep my guard up for awhile or the rest of my life I guess I dont want that evil back in me.
On a lighter note I feel a lot better breathing has improved starting to swim again once a week.
Started an early spring clean in my flat loads to do.Come across my ashtray the other day made me think what do people do with them every time they decide to quit as they are made of glass and plastic many will still be intact in thousands of years in landfills I guess.
For me smoking has been a great evil in my life it has stopped me doing a lot my Mother ( never close ) died at 54 from lung cancer and I heard my Father ( never hnew him ) died of a smoking related problem. All of the adults I knew when I was younger smoked even the teachers at school (yep some were even Nuns).
Anyhow good luck to everyone deciding to quit and thanks for all the support on the board we all have a common goal here.
