Hi all. I'm 32 and have been smoking since I was 14. There has not been 1 single day in the last 18 years that I have not smoked. Thought about quitting and even been to get advise a few times over the last few years but still have been puffing away on 20 or 25 a day. UNTIL TODAY.
Got some patches yesterday, had my last puff at 10 pm last night. I was freaking out about having no smokes in the house for this morning but I got up, slapped on a patch and have been very surprised.
No smoking all day for me. Sorry to blow my own trumpet and I know it's only day 1 but I'm quite proud of myself. Off to bed now as I'm starting to struggle a little. Have been reading the forum all day and is nice to read so many success stories, I only hope I can be one of them.
I know this is going to be hard and I am waiting for some kind of symptoms to come along and slap me but so far so good. Not looking forward to tomorrow as so many people say they feel worse on day 2 but will try my hardest. Best thing so far is the smile on my daughters face when I collected her from school today as was able to tell her I have not smoked!!
Any advise or tips would be really appreciated
