Today is the first day of my quit after a failed attempt in June - it only lasted for 10 days - no excuses, just my miserable lack of willpower.
I've been smoking for about 20 years, usually at least 12 a day but I know it is time I gave up for good. To help me this time I've got a supply of 2mg lozenges and also one of those e-cigs which I will use as a last resort.
What has really prompted me to try and give up smoking for good though is that I've noticed I'm starting to develope a smoker's cough which is especially worse first thing in the morning - I know this is all the proof I need that I must stop now.
Will continue to keep posting, and also reading all the tips and good advice on here, in the hope that I will stay motivated this time. I'm feeling really positive and focused this time but I know I'm going to need all the help I can get.
