I've finally found the new thread button !!!
I've decided to quit smoking again but for good this time. In the past I thought I'd just have the odd one at the weekend but always lead to me smoking full time again !! My wife smokes so the temptation was always there, she said she'll pack in too but either way i'm off them completely from on.
I'm on day 2 now and it's going quite well, the hard bit will be when I get home tomorrow after being away working, not having one after a few beers. I thought I'd join this forum and tell people i've quit so I'll feel guilty if I just have one (hope this works).
In the past I've tried not to eat too much when packing in as I don't want to put on weight, but this time i'm going to treat myself to some decent food this weekend as a treat for not smoking, the diet can wait.
I read the Alan Carr book for the second time the other week but it didn't work for me again, the good thing though is that it had decent advice which will help me quit. I'm going cold turkey as I want the nicotine out my system asap. I've used NRT in the past but found since going cold turkey a few weeks back that I don't really get withdrawal symtoms, it's just a mental thing thinking that one cigarette will be great after a few beers at the weekend, then before I know it I'm back smoking full time again. I'm 39 and have been smoking for 25 years so I'm not kidding myself it'll be easy to get out of the habit.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated over the next few days, weeks etc.
