So loving just having this forum here to check in with - even if it's just lurking and reading others' posts in those tough moments.
So - day 7 on the gum. Didn't realise it was a whitening one - I though the ice mint referred to the taste! My teeth are so much whiter. Went to the dentist this morning for scheduled scale and polish and now they're extra gleaming. Another incentive not to go back to smoking and yellow stained teeth. Think I'll celebrate with a red lippie day tomorrow!
The only people who I've told I've quit (apart from you guys here!) are my DH and two co-workers who'd normally invite me out for a cig every couple of hours... I guess it's partly cos I have the fear of doing a big announcement and falling flat on my face by failing in my quit attempt, and partly cos as soon as I do tell everyone I'll feel boxed into my decision and want to rebel. Sheesh - that really doesn't make much sense.
My question is who have and haven't you told. When did you tell them? What did you say to former smoking buddies - particularly at work. I don't want to be seen as no longer part of the gang by them thinking I'm judging them...
