Thank god i have found this website, i thought i was all alone!! I quit smoking on the 2nd Jan 2011 after 15 years smoking 20 a day from the moment i woke up to the very last moment before going bed!! Alot of my friends smoke so stayed away from them for the first week to avoid temptation. Now on day 18 and today and yesterday have been my best days so far, the hardest days for me where so far between the 4th and 8th Jan then days 14 15 and 16 of stopping smoking they were just the worst. Feeling good today apart from the first half hour of waking up. I know there will be bad days again as i did enjoy a fag but after trying to stop probably over 20 times this has been my strongest attempt so very proud just really hope i dont give in now cos i could not cope doing this again!! Nice to have support on here as my girlfriend of 6 years has always been heavily against me smoking and has tried to make me stop for years, hence the 20+ times trying but the time was right for me to do it not cos she was tellling me to which has been vital. However she really has not supported me cos she beleives you can just stop whenever (we all know we cant on here though right?) strange she wanted me to stop and now i have shes not really to bothered!!!! Anyone else have that problem on here??? So any support from you guys would be great. Good luck to all with these hard days still to come. Any help or just someone to listen let me know!!!:) Forgot to say i am quiting using the new Niquitin 4mg lozenes and they are really good, i always used patches before but they itched too much!!
