Hi all, I have been reading these forums and found them a good support over the past couple of weeks and then questioned why I don't join in.
So just to say hello and introduce myself, I am a 26 yr old guy who has smoked since I was 17 starting uni. Work as a doctor and finally decided last Friday night enough was enough.
Started thinking I could go cold turkey Sat/Sun but by the time the stress of work came along on the Monday, I needed some help. Have been using patches since with the odd puff on an inhalator when the cravings get too much particularly when I am driving to work and things seem to be going well.
Knew Friday just gone was going to be a challenge as was going out with collegues drinking on the town, and had almost resigned myself to the fact I would have caved - but I didn't!
So here I am, day 9, and feeling good as a result!
