I have been lurking for a few days and decided to make a thread. I am currently on day 4 and using one of those plastic nicotine sticks. I live with my partner and we both decided to stop on new years day. I had my last smoke at midnight exactly.
I am 26 and have been smoking for 8 years. I have previously stopped for 2 months when I was 19, I can't really remember why I started again though, I just remember my mum telling me to smoke again as I was so angry all the time. My mum died of cancer in Sep 2010 so that is 1 reason why I want to stop as I have seen what it could do to me.
Day 1 was easy. Day 2 was very hard, and day 3 was my first day back at work after the Christmas holidays so it was even harder. My dad told me to break the habit of a few smoking places for example to stop smoking in my car for a week or so, which I completey ignored....he stopped smoking more than 10 years ago now, which leaves me the only family member who smoked.
I was rolling my own cigarettes and smoked about 15 a day.
At the minute I am very unmotivated and can't be bothered to do anything when I get home I have watched the 'How to stop smoking easy' videos and they make me laugh as they are so true and make you realise why you think the way you do.
Good Luck to everyone!
