Ok. Im 32 and been smoking since 16 years old. I started on about 10-20 a week and over the years it crept up to 15 a day sunday-thursday and fri-sat 30 a day (pubs/bars) ... Well, saturday 9 days ago i was ill with a fever and i was soo down I decided to go out and have a few beers, I must have smoked 30 cigs in 5 hours. Next morning I woke up with a banging headache, my nose was constantly flowing with nuceaus and my throat felt like it got a good rub down with sandpaper. i was that ill i couldnt get up the road to buy cigerettes let alone smoke one. Anyway I was sick in bed for 2 days, didnt get out unless for toilet or a bowl of soup, after 2 days I felt a little better and took the dogs for a walk and had some lunch and went back for a lie down and i realised i hadn't smoked in two and half days and i didn't crave a cigerette either..hmmmm!! .. I said to my self if i dont need a cigerette I might aswell quit. so for the remainer 6 and a half days i havn't smoked or needed one.. Dont get my wrong i'm constantly eating and im in a bad mood, but i dont want a cigerette..Weird.. ! ..When I feel agitated I go to the back garden and take 10 deep deep breath's and i find that that calm's me down.... hmmm maybe iv'e cracked it!!!
