Hello Everyone I'm Clair and I was a smokeaholic.....
Well today is day 1 of being smoke free, I have smoked for 22 years around 10-15 a day, and for the last few years I have wanted to quit, I don't know why I haven't tried seriously before (apart from last September when I managed 9 days and then just caved in)
But this time I really want to stop, I am starting with the patches (wish I could go cold turkey, but don't think I am that hardcore :D)
It's weird because for the last 20 odd years all I have ever revolved my life around was cigarettes when I think about it!, when can I have one, how many have i got left?, god I can't smoke in here!, airports were a nightmare of thinking about the next fag and how long I had to wait for one.
counting how many I had smoked (feeling guilty if smoked too many) etc etc
Now all I am thining about not thinking about them!!!!!
It would be great to hear your comments on how your'e coping and hopefully we can support each other over the coming weeks/months
