Ok I am new to this forum and on Day 5. Have smoked for about 25 years (Crikey its scarey when i add up the years) - and also adding up the years makes me see why breaking this long standing habit is going to be new and strange and at times a difficult battle. I have done it once before and then foolishly thought i could have "just one" and Hey Ho!! back to the addiction.
So Day 1 - 4 was fairly easy...in fact a breeze...but Jeez!! Day 5 has been a nicotine monster sitting on my shoulder ALL day telling me how much better I would feel if only i had a cigarette. So I have cleaned my camper van, been shopping, resprayed some plastic stuff that i wanted to do, cleaned my wardrobe, re sealed bathroom shower, tidied kitchen cupboards - everything to avoid thinking too much about fags! I sat down at 8pm and had one glass of cider - alcohol can be a trigger for me but I have to get on with this so girls and boys...I havent caved in to that monster and Day 6 is in front of me...hoepfully somewhat better! Keep going everyone and dont ever think "just one"!!
