newbie about to begin stopping!

hi im debs.

im finally about to start stopping. am on day 2 of champix and planned my quit date too. been smoking 20 a day for so long its hard to remember when (or why) i started.

anyway just wanted to say hi and maybe get to know some folks in advance of my quit date. kinda planning ahead for support as i dont have much family close by. my hubby quit 2yrs ag and i am afraid to say has reached the slightly smug stage. i can see him being on the recieving end of some rants shortly.

this time round tho i am doing this for me. not cos i am being pressured into it for various reasons.

soooo...feel free to offer help, advice or even just say hi!:D

Well you're on the right track - a) doing this for YOU and b) posting on here. Two very BIG factors that will help you make this a success!

Best of luck with your quit. And welcome.

Hi Debs,

Welcome, I'm on champix too and it's helped me i used to smoke 20+ a day so far today is 11 days no smoking:) you can do it

Changing routine is good, keeping busy, posting here and keeping a money saved jar, reading posts on here anything to keep your mind off it for the first few days, I'm finding that i don't think about smoking half as much as i did in the first few days x

You'll get plenty of support here, good luck with your quit

Hi Debbie.

I won't wish you luck because luck has nothing to do with your success.

Your state of mind is the most important thing. Keep reminding yourself why you are quitting and spending a lot of time here will help quite a bit.

OK, maybe I'll wish you a bit of luck too.....:D

thanks everyone. its great to see so many folks at different stages of what i want to achieve. Gives me a good idea of what to expect in addition to getting a lot of support.

expect to see a lot of me in the next few weeks! One day soon i hope i can help others to quit too.
