Well, I quit on Tursday night at 10pm and I wasn't looking forward to the next day. Been smoking for 31 years and have never tried to give up before.
Up the next morning at 7:30 (really wanted to stay in bed so I wouldn't have to think about it) and it's my day off and I've nothing to do. 8:30 and I'm starting to want a smoke (yippeeee I've lasted 1 hour) so I go for the chewing gum (normal stuff, I'm going cold turkey).
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT. 4 days later and I still haven't had a smoke, had loads of chewing gum but it's getting better every day.
I can honestly say it's down to will power. On the first day, every time I felt like having a smoke It seemed like I was having an argument with myself (bit like that scene with Gollum in Lord of the Rings) but it has got easier.
I,m no expert but anyone who's having problems just give yourself a slap and remind yourself why you gave up in the first place.
If I can do it anyone can
