Ok, I've not seriously attempted to give up before. I've not suffered any obvious effect from smoking and indeed probably like everyone else I rather enjoy it. But the cost and the fact I'm about to have a second child (the lady not me personally) has finally swayed me that I really need to stop.
Most of my peers have now stopped and I'm one of the few who still do. It's been playing on my mind for ages. I've tried the patches once or twice but found them useless - although in truth I never actually gave up for more than a few hours.
I can't say I've even actually stopped now, because I stopped at lunchtime.
Anyway, I've bought my last pack and have two fags more left - which I'll finish tonight. I'm actually looking forward to finishing them. As in having nothing left rather than the actual smoking bit.
I ordered some of those mouth sprays from Amazon and have used these this afternoon and found they do actually make me feel better. You may laugh because its only been a few hours but I feel rather liberated and in my head I'm ready for the fight. Because I know it'll be a fight.
I think Once I've got through this weekend I'll book a trip to the dentist and get the teeth cleaned up.
Come on then Mr Smoke I dare you! :eek:
