Hi everyone, this is my first time on the sight. So this is possibly about the 6th or 7th time I have tried to quit. I absolutely hate smoking and everything associated with it and the only reason I do it is because like everyone else I am addicted. Patches did not work for me. Gum did not work for me. Champix worked for me which is something I tried about three times but made me quite a depressive angry person. Only problem is after a few months I only have to have a good drink and that's it I start again. I am currently trying the inhalator, I have had good few cravings which is to be expected. I think the worse thing about quitting smoking is having to give so much else up meaning your life becomes one constant big boring struggle. For e.g. I like drinking every few nights to relieve stress but I have to give that up to quit smoking, I just want to constantly eat but I'm told to eat healthy food which is not something I've ever been good at doing excessively. Then there is the losing my temper and shouting at my poor ten year old daughter, being a single mom who works part time in a stressful job, I just think is it worth it? I know it is if eventually I can get through it and never smoke again but will that happen? Sorry everyone for waffling on but any thoughts or ideas greatly welcomed.
