Well, Im about 14 hours complete for day 1 which so far has been up and down, so I supect tomorrow will start to tickle my nerves somewhat.
Im still undecided as to whether to go cold turkey or make use of the nicotine products. At work im geographically close to a pharmacy so if things get bad I can pop over and get some gum or something similar. I dont like the idea of relieving the cravings with the very drug your body is craving but my wife and I would like to start a family this year so its imperative I stop this time around.
Ive smoked for about 16 years (!!!), on about 10 a day and have attempted to stop several times previous, but never managed it. My best effort was 10 months which suggests to me that this hunger for nicotine really is just in the head.
All the best to those in the same boat, keep smiling and remember to look at the bigger picture to remind yourself of why.
