Day 24 (anyone else imagine the Big Brother Geordie accent when they write the day down?)
Going really well now. The urges to smoke are few and far between, although I'm still getting nicotine cravings - there's a subtle difference between the two, but it's there. The nicotine cravings are lessening too - I'm still using the patches but finding I'm use the spray/inhalator less.
I didn't really smoke much before I quit, around 6/7 a day, so the benefits of stopping haven't really been hugely noticable. I guess that's a sign that I haven't done too much damage yet. I have noticed that I get a little less out of breath when I'm walking fast, and one person has commented on how well I look.
Going to see the nurse tomorrow. Although I've already stopped smoking, I need some advice about coming off the nicotine. She might be able to help me come up with some ideas to replace the anti-depressant effect of nicotine (probably exercise. it's always exercise :mad:).
All in all, not smoking is starting to feel pretty normal now.
