Thought i'd try and find some kind of online community about this because I tend to find myself more encouraged and distracted when I'm discussing subjects as opposed to ignoring them.
I'm 26, been smoking for about 5-6 years (i'd say about 10-15 a day on average), and recently i've just been sick of struggling to walk up hills, coughing regularly, money and seeing my dad struggle a lot with coughing.
So I thought, without planning, i'd go cold turkey. Literally decided last night. Still got cigarettes in the house and i'm trying not to put too much pressure on myself because then i know i'll feel upset with myself if I do fail - whereas without pressure, it seems easier?
So anyway, it's day one, 6PM and looks like I might get through my first day without a cigarette in 5-6 years. Hopefully it will get easier, because i'm having pretty big cravings, but i'm just trying to distract myself with phone calls, drinking water and watching some TV / reading!
Would be interested to get some feedback
