I actually wasn't planning to quit.
I have tried in the past to no avail. My wife smokes too and she managed a whole week before starting again and I was so proud of her. I never managed to get past three days until a few months ago when I got to ten days - for which I was proud of myself.
I tried all the various NRTs to no avail along with going CT but that didn't work either. I also tried various e-cigs which also didn't help. A good replacement for when I couldn't smoke but no proper replacement for the real thing.
But I saw a new e-cig today - won't advertise the brand but suffice to say, it seems to have worked. I always crave a cig more when drinking and tonight I've had a fair few - and while puffing away on my e-cig, I've not had a single proper cigarette.
I get that they're not the best way of quitting since I'm still getting just as much nicotine and everything but they're cheaper without the toxins so gonna stick with em.
I never really chose to quit, I just saw them and thought I'd give it a try.
It's 02:35 right now and I'm going to bed soon. Tomorrow is the hard part but I can say with more confidence than usual that I think I might manage it this time.
Live Long and Prosper
