New here and on day 1 !!

Hey everyone :)

I had my last cigarette at midnight and am almost 11 hours into my quit (slept for 7 of them though :p) I have quit before for 2 weeks but sadly started again :mad: Not to worry, am confident this time is the right time !!

I am stopping for all the usual reasons; health, money, self pride. My real drive however is for my 3 kids...I love them to bits and it kills me to think I could die young because of smoking, and not be around to see them grow up :(

I decided that my life was going nowhere fast, so I decided to give it a complete make over. I have started eating healthier, am doing a full time college course and all that's left is to quit the cigarettes !

I am using the 24 hour patches and the mini lozenges and am really looking forward to being member on here x

  • Also on Day 1

    Hi Twilight, I am also on day 1 today, I had quit for 6 weeks in September and then started smoking again for 2 weeks so I am back on this forum and more determined than ever that this is my final quit. I am also on the patches (12 hr) so we can keep an eye on each other. :)

  • Oooh welcome Twilight - and congratulations on your decision. You've definitely found a great place for encouragement, support, tips and advice. I'm on Day 3 now (and rather proud of it!) but not sure I'd have made it without these fine folk on here ...
