Hi everyone. Hope you're all ok. I had my last ciggy on the 19th March and am now on day 11.
I started smoking when I was 13 :eek: and gave up for about 2 years in 2001, but stupidly started again. I gave up for about 6 months last year, but continued to be a "social smoker" - smoking when i had a drink.... which just made me drink more, so I could smoke, so I eventually started up again!
I've seemed to find excuses to start smoking in the past, because I really enjoyed it!
I'm sick now. 32 years old and getting married in a couple of months. I really want to be smoke free for my wedding. I think there's nothing worse than seeing a bride smoking! lol, plus we want to have a family after the wedding, so will be giving up anyway. Seems like a good idea to get fit and healthy for that!!
As I said, I'm on day 11 of cold turkey, and I'm actually feeling pretty good. I'm not looking forward to going out drinking, as this is always when i've fallen off the wagon in the past.
It doesn't help that 90% of my friends smoke, so it's going to be really resisting temptation!
Can anyone give any tips??
