So I'm 3 days into my second serious attempt to quit CT, having smoked for the last 22 years (jeeze i'm only 36 - thats 2 thirds of my life!). I've wanted to quit for ages, I'm fed up of being in a state of fear over my health - will I won't I get cancer/copd/emphasyma etc worrying at every twinge. Not to mention the cost - After going round Asda at the weekend saying no to my daughters requests for various things because "I couldn't afford it" I then stopped at the garage to buy a packet of cigs and the cost £6.75 and something in my brain just clicked - how the hell can I justify spending nearly £7 a day to slowly kill myself,but, say no to a £2 comic or question the price of some dried fruit, its crazy.
Have been reading these forums quite a bit over the last couple of days and its really helped so far. Today hasn't been too bad as have kept busy, but, am feeling quite shaky and agitated at the moment and soooo need a good nights sleep - have had 2 crap nights sleep and really don't think I can handle another bad one. Anyway rant over - thanks for listening
