So I decided on 2nd of January to stop the cigs. I'm now struggling and constantly thinking of smoking.
Now the main problems I'm having are:
* I work in Italy and therefore am away from home at the moment, returning for 1 day between 4th January and 25th January. Missing my friends and family is not helping.
* Theres a smoking room 5 doors away from my office.
* Drinking alcohol makes me want to smoke
* Smoking still seems to be socially acceptable in Italy
So.... At the moment I am replacing most of my cigs with water or herbal tea, I have now cut out drinking alcohol so as not to tempt me to have a cig, I am not even having a glass of wine with my dinner. The smoking room is something that I cannot avoid as I have to walk past it to get to my office.
My work means I spend a lot of time outside and also waiting which is not helping and I'm finding myself getting hyperactive and pushing myself and my colleagues to work harder to take my mind of things, this in turn is making me more tired. Oh and I have developed this rather nasty cough which is driving me crazy!!!
At the moment I'm considering just chucking in the towel and having a cig, it seems the easiest option but... I have set myself this challenge and want to succeed.
Any help / advise if appreciated.
One last thing, I'm 29, have smoked between 10 - 15 cigs a day since for nearly 16 years and I'm going cold Turkey.
