An old world of smells and tastes have been reopened for me and it feels good! Although I do admit if smoking could mask the smell of someones breath I had to endure for a whole 5mins without being rude last night I would add it to my pro/con list!
Todays day 6 and I've been using nicotine patches which has worked out quite well, on my previous quits I tried doing it on willpower alone which failed horribly. The last time I posted on here I had already smoked by the time I checked my reply, to which I had some messages of support and a lovely lady who had quit after recovering from cancer. I couldn't find that thread again, and if you're reading this I'm sorry.
Although the patches are working wonders its impossible without willpower...I do get sudden urges to rip them off and pick up a smoke which I try to overcome by chewing tons of gum and breathing techniques. Can literally feel some oxygen circulating around my body which is keeping me going too, after doing some reading I've found that all those little headaches and body aches are caused by an increased amount of oxygen circulating to that region that hasn't been there for a long time!
Good luck to my fellow quitters.
