Well after much soul searching and many months spent being a smoker again, I have decided that the time is right for me to give this quitting lark another go. I have one cigarette left in my packet which I am about to smoke and then it's on with the nicotine patch.
I am a little frightened at the prospect of losing my little crutch, my amigo. I have been a smoker for a hell of a long time and feel like I am bout to lose my best friend, but I know that I have to do this for my health, my bank balance and my future.
Yesterday I was conscious of the fact that I was clearing my throat all day long and I know this is down to the evil weed.
I worry that I will never enjoy a meal, a glass of wine or a cup of coffee in the same way again BUT I also worry about dying of all the horrible diseases that smoking can cause. SO.....here we go again. Wish me luck
