Thank you for allowing me to join in with what looks like a very friendly supportive forum
I have smoked for 25 years (age 44 now), started on readymades then moved to roll my own around 15 years ago. Smoking around 20-30 a day.
I have tried giving up on a few occasions and I have always failed ... miserably! The last time was many years ago and lasted exactly 17 days before I caved in and rolled over like a dead dog!
I have been thinking of giving up for many months now and considered my "method of attack" for the coming battles.
I decided to try the "I'll cut down route" and purchased some inhalers, for the last few days I have been having "4 roll up stinkers" in the morning and moving to the inhaler for the rest of the day.
My "Nicorette ActiveStop" day is this Monday coming.
But here is my quandary......
I haven't had a puff since 12.30PM yesterday....I suddenly realised I have already done my day 1....
....there have been a couple of shaky moments but I just use the inhaler for a few seconds and then carry on. (I am using one cartridge a day)
I am also reading Allen Carr's book which I must say is very inspirational! His vision and wording are so clear and concise! ... He makes you see it in a whole different light! I am 2/3 through it and hope to read it again and again.
I know I'm probably asking the obvious and probably just looking for excuses ..... but do I just "carry on not carrying on" if you know what I mean?
Anyway, hope to read as many of your previous posts as I can although I am probably not strong enough or knowledgeable enough to add to the comments and discussions yet. I hope this will change!
Thank you all for your time folks
