Hello everyone, well I thought its about time I introduced myself, I'm Karen and I'm just coming to the end of day 5, found the forum a couple of days ago but just sort of been lurking but finally decided to post.
I first quit in January of this year with hypnosis (no NRT) but started again after 4 months or so - how rubbish is that? I can't even remember the trigger but I'm sure it was the 'just one won't harm' scenario!
Anyway I'm back again as really want to stop, I want to be free again! So I had my last cig on Tuesday evening (6.11.12) and went cold turkey (also using hypnosis cd I got from my original session.
It's been tough, I've had a week off work, which usually would mean me smoking more - I'm kind of a secret smoker, I only smoke at home (well outside) so it has been hard. I did contemplate leaving it until I go back to work tomorrow as I don't smoke at work, but decided to tackle my toughest points first - and I survived, 5 days! Had a few bad cravings over the weekend and nearly crumbled but took one at a time and read the advice on here and got through it!!
So glad I found this forum as it really has helped so far, determined to quit for good this time!
Will keep you posted
