Day 406...aok

Being in the imaginary penthouse, I don't tend to comment much on here nowadays (shame because the forum was my crutch for the first 4/5 months).

2012 has been a pretty awful year (not sporting wise as the euros, wimbledon, olympics and paralympics were citeh winning the league was particularly pants...GGMU :o) ) Father in Law was in intensive care for months, OH broke her ankle in March and was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in Oct...Operation done, but outcome plus Chemo/Radio in the near future...none of these stressful events has made me consider smoking again (even though OH is still smoking)...stopping has empowered me and the self resolve has extended to other areas of life!!!

There has been some discussion on NRT on here recently...I used lozenges for the first week...I probably wouldn't be on day 406 without them as they helped me on the most vunerable days (days 1, 2 and 3)...I stopped the lozenges on day 6 as nicotine wasn't the was 25 years of mental conditioning/sub concious coping mechanisms...Allen Carr and various people on the forum made me realise this.

Keep strong everybody!!! and good luck on your journeys!!! It is not as impossible as we are made to can be hard work but hard work is rewarded!!
