This is my first post, but I have been reading a great deal of the content from the web and felt it time to start being more involved and not sitting on the sidelines,
I am 46 years old and have smoked approx 25 a day since being 14, I am a little unsure of my reasons for quitting as I haven't suffered any health issues and can still play football etc, I also am lucky enough not to have a financial incentive to quit, but, I just feel it time to call it a day as it is not a particularly pleasant pastime and I feel more and more like a social outcast.
I have quit on will power alone and at 46 days I am doing ok, I have had the cravings and still fancy a cigarette at times but try to defeat it mentally, however, I have thrown on about 5 kgs, I am just getting into a space where I can start to reduce my eating and have started an exercise and diet program ttwo days ago to hopefully combat the danger of turning into the fat controller.:mad:
I would like to thank a lot of the contributors to this site as it does help at certain moments through the quit and hopefully I may be able to pass on some of my experiences as it goes and gain more time without the fags.
Thanks all and heres to a hope of a resounding success!!!!
