I just joined the forum and it's been 25 days since I quitted smoking. I've found a lot of support in friends and family to get to this day. I was a smoker for over 16 years and it was time to chose LIFE
I decided to go cold turkey and not use any substitutes. All I'm doing is a blog every couple of days to remind me why I've quite. I dedicate each blog to an additive of tobacco, and after few days reading about all the stuff tobacco companies add to it... I really don't want to have a cigarette even near!
One of the hardest part of giving up is going to the pub. Oh my! I avoided it for few days and the association with beer was greater than I could expect, but after these 3 weeks I'm feeling strong. I even had the guts to reject a ciggy that a so-called friend offered, and did not get stressed. You always find the odd loser that offers you one, they are the people to avoid in the future.
