I used this forum to help me get to the stage I'm at now. I feel as though it has really helped me stay smoke free so after browsing for 8 days I decided to join.
I have been smoking about 20 a day for 5 years and I though honestly I would never quit. Last Saturday at 2pm I decided I would attempt to quit and see what happens. I was amazed when I got pass day 3 that I had managed to not smoke for that amount of time. I'm using nicotine patches to help with the cravings and they have really helped. Every day that passes I know I don't want to ever go back to day 1 or ruin my progress its the driving force behind my determination. I decided to confront all the situations that would of made me smoke like drinking alcohol and driving and I feel as though it has just strengthened my will power.
