Day three for me

Ok, this may be a bit of a blab :)

Have been given the 24hr patch and the inhalator for my first week.

Day 1 and 2 I actually found pretty easy, as I was away with work and out of my normal routine.

Even managed a few drinks and just kept puffing on my inhalator all night :)

Now on day three I am back into my normal routine and finding it a bit more difficult. I find myself today, thinking about smoking constantly. But when I actually think "do I really want a cig right now" the answer is no. It would be silly. Also finding myself alot more talkative and energetic which is a good thing. And the crazy dreams from the patch are quite funny :)

The reason I am stopping is money. At over £6 for 20, and I was smoking 20 a day, it is becoming ridiculous. The way I see it, you go to the bank, take out £10 to buy your packet, and the change just dissappears. So really you could look at it as £10 per day!

So I have set up a savings account and from the 1st Feb which was my quit day, the bank puts £300 from my pay into my savings account.

My boyfriend and I have booked a holiday to Kenya for this year so all my cig money is going to pay for it :)

Hopefully if I can keep thinking of my fabby holiday, I can keep strong!

Love this website, and reading about everyone elses experiences x (told you it would be a blab)
