I've been a heavy smoker for almost 6 years, my reasons are recently I have been experiencing chronic and health anxiety and the smokes that used to help me through are scaring me and making my anxiety worse. At first I decided to cut down a lot and felt it'd be easier when I do quit for good but I'm sort of an all or nothing person when it comes to smoking, that wasn't working because I would not stop at one, so it wasn't working. I just want the nicotine addiction to leave my body so I am no longer a slave to it and can't see any other way out besides CT. Why tomorrow? Today is very stressful as I will be having a tooth removed (I've had them removed before but now I hate having it done immensely!) tomorrow probably and smoking scares me in terms of infection and dry socket so it seems a good day to start. I am of course worried of all the side effects and of a relapse but all I can do is try I feel.
