My name is Lorraine and 29 years old. I have been smoking since I was 13/14 years old and I have attempted quiting several times before. My last attempt was with Champix tablets and they were great untill I ran out and couldnt get back to the GP's due to work I lasted 3 months, 2 of those months were without the champix and did the fatal just one wont hurt and that was over a year ago. Me and my husband are trying to start a family and so far having no such luck. I decided I had to give up smoking again because (1) dont want to smoke whilst pregnant and (2) I dont want to bring my baby up around smoke.
So Today is DAY 1 !!!! I am not using patches, champix or any other NRT so I know it will be hard but really need to stop this time round. I have as yet not told anyone around me that I am quitting just wanted to get first couple days out of the way whilst I am off work.
Look forward to reading others progress and how they manage the cravings etc.
