I had to give up smoking on Tuesday 11-1-11 just before I had my 2nd collar bone operation (the 1st time the bone didnt unite, probably due to smoking) so the reason for giving up is medical. Ive been a smoker for 18 years and am now 32.
Im finding it a bl**dy nightmare, I just want to fight / kick / shout at anything that comes my way. The worst thing is that I cant go to the shop and buy a nice (mmmm.) pouch of tabacco with a packet of blue papers with extra slimline filters. If I do I risk my bones not healing together.
On top of that Ive always smoked my daily spliff in the evening to keep life, well, semi-interesting. I cant even do that anymore.
I dont like patches or inhalers as they feel like firing blanks on guns, and they also dont satisfy above. Champix makes people depressed.
Ive told myself 6 months no smoking then I can light up again (perfect timing for summer) but s**t man, 6 months is such a long time. Ill go insane before then!
The giving up smoking hurts more than my broken collar bone. No joke.
I miss it though, it me, my personality and everything. And its been put on an excruciatingly painful hold.
Help! life sucks
