Im on day 2 of quitting.
I have stopped before for about 6 months around 2 years ago, it was really hard work and cant believe I have started again I thought i would have just the one but it turned into another one and another one.
Its crazy really I love to smoke, but I hate it, its a vile smelly habit I was really embarrassed when I smoked but really enjoyed it lol, oh well my reasons for quitting,
I am 50 in June, and am waiting for a hip replacement and all I could think about was not being able to smoke in hospital, also that they like you not to smoke for a few weeks before the op. So I decided I would try to give up a few weeks before the op as i would also heal better if not smoking.
Then on Saturday my ex husband died at 52 from smoking related lung cancer, OMG..My son who is 25 then presented me on Mothers Day (the day after he lost his Dad) with one of those electronic cigarettes that he had brought for his dad talk about a wake up call, there and then I thought why wait for hospital just do it NOW, so Monday morning I had my last fag.
I rang the Doctors to see the smoking nurse but they cant fit me in for 2 weeks, (great) so have found some patches in the cupboard and using the electronic cigarette when Im desperate. well fingers crossed this time i will quit for good,,xx
