Hi All, Happy New Years to you all!
An update to follow up from the thread I posted in the week 2 forum.
So I spent Christmas Day with my Dad & Brother, everything was going quite well until my brother gave me his Christmas present, which was cigarettes he said he knew I'd stopped smoking but I needed them anyway for when I gave up and he's bought them so I'll just have to smoke them anyway now.
Was as I'm sure you can understand quite upset and didn't really know how to react, part of me wanted to smoke the lot out of spite, but I left them and later in the day told him I was sorry but I couldn't accept them. Luckily I had an emergency E-Cig to get me through! The next few days were quite tough as I new there was a carton of cigarettes with my name on in the house, but I made it through and haven't looked back since.
So I'm almost at 3 full weeks and I'm feeling pretty good. The app I'm using is really motivating I don't want to let it down so it keeps me going.
Have had my first real symptoms of stopping too, with some quite horrible mouth ulcers over the last few days, also has anyone ever suffered from really cracked and peeling skin on the face after stopping? Never happend to me at all before!
