hi all i joined this forum today after reading through some very inspirational posts! .... i have smoked between 20-30 a day for the last 16 years. I have been using patches for 21 days but have decided today that i am going to take the patch off as of tomorrow. I have lots of support at home, i have a supportive husband and 3 wonderful children all cheering me on but today was my worst day by far
i woke with an extreme craving that seems to have lasted for most of the day, no matter what i have done i have not been able to take my mind off having a smoke but i have managed not to have one, and thats mainly due to reading through everyones post on here and realising i am not alone
I have also been readin allen carrs easyway to quit smoking and would ask for peoples opinions on this book?...i like the way he states that nicotine is a drug addiction and the only reason why we see it as a pleasure is because when we are smoking we are temporarily relieving a craving and that gives the illusion of smoking being pleasurable :confused:
anyway nice to be a part of this fab online community and wish everyone all the luck and energy for the battle against the evil one.... nicotine!
