Today I stopped smoking and thus far so far so good. Early days eh!
This is my fourth attempt having tried patchs, champix and cold turkey previously. And each of those attempts I've stopped for longer each time: 2 weeks, 3 weeks and 10 weeks.
I'm 28 years old and smoked 20 a day. I bought 4mg gum today and I reallly like it. I like physically doing something ie grabbing a bit of gum and chewing it, then lodging it up in my gum, when I have a craving! I've been keeping myself busy today also which has helped. And I've only had 3 gums!!!! And one bonus with the gums is your not supposed to eat 15 min prior to using them or for the 30 mins the gum is in your mouth so I'm hoping this will stop any out of the ordinary snacking!!! Each gum you have you basically can't eat for 45 mins
I put on one stone when I stopped for 10 weeks last year so I'm really going to try not let that happen again. So swimming tomoro nite it is!
Anyway, good luck to everyone else in the midst of stopping! I'm just going to try my HARDEST to stay strong. Just tell myself I don't smoke when I get a craving. I CAN do this!!!!
