I have joined the site today and if the first time ever, that I have posted anything, so here goes: I am on day 4 using patches and inhalator. I have been reading the messages on the site and it has helped cope with those little urges. Today has been the most difficult; had the day off work and I have been on my own. I have kept myself busy painting my dad's new house. The big test was going to the shop... the fags were on the shelf and they kept saying "" "buy me". I surpised myself and resisted. I am feeling more confident each day that passes.
