Well, I'm still here and still smoke free! Feeling very positive but i do know there will be difficult times ahead. I'm spending the weekend with my best friend, who doesn't smoke, so that will make life a little easier, but i am getting some strong urges to smoke despite having the full strength patch on and the inhalator as and when i need it. I have this voice in my head saying - enough, already, you have proved your point, now give me a fag!
Sometimes i feel like a goldfish with a short memory. I'll have the thought that i will go outside for a fag then remember i don't do that any more, then a minute later I will have the same thought! My husband said he's having internal arguments with himself all the time but we both knew it wasn't going to be easy.
I am struggling with one side effect in particular. Drinking lots of water and eating fruit but still nothing so i have had a tummy ache all week. Senna doesn't work on me so if you have any tips or suggestions, please share!
wishing everyone a smoke free day!
