I am new to the forum and I hope that it will provide me (and others) with help and that push to continue when we need it!
A little about me to start...I am in my early 20's, tried my first cigarette at 13 and started properly at college (roughly 12 - 20 a day dependent upon where I was, general stress or the occasion / event), my partner does not smoke (of which we have been together since college and are getting married this year)
I am trying to quit (again, one of the many attempts), of which have included - CT, Champix (I went 4 months!), Patches and then this go "Allen Carr - and resorting away from his advice a 'Nicorette Inhalator & 10g cartridges".
I REALLY need to do this for my own health and happiness also I know I can but just need guidance and a little push along.
Today has been a hard day...I have had a small amount of alcohol and haven't cracked. I have had many a craving...don't get me wrong, the cigarette counter in the shop turned me into a horrible, moody mess!
My partner is there for me but my best friends words around a previous quit attempt of "You obviously don't want to quit so I doubt you ever will" (a non-smoker ring in my ears - who doesn't want to!)
I am going out for a meal tomorrow with my partner and don't want to crack.
Advice and anything anyone can say to help will push me along these first few hard days!!
Many thanks in advance, Ang xoxo (Sorry it was long!)
