Met up with some friends I had not seen for years at the weekend. As soon as I saw them I wanted to smoke, that is what we used to do together. I even went as far as buying a packet of 10 and lighting up. After 3 puffs on a cigarette I was done. They taste horrible... I gave the pack away. I guess it could be labelled as a relapse but I feel it has reinforced my giving up. I don't even want to smoke now.
Saying that, I am a bit of a slave to the ecig, but I'm letting that ride for a few months and then cutting down gradually on the nicotine. I know that this is not good advice for everyone but I was a heavy smoker for 34 years and am currently having some difficult times in my life so this is the best way for me.
I'm hardly coughing at all but today my lungs hurt and I had a short coughing session tonight. I'm hoping that it is some of the tar shifting out.
Anyway I'm pleased enough with two weeks but know that 8 weeks is my difficult time (as I've done this before). Hence I'm going to continue to use Ecigs up to as many months as I need to as long as it is under 12 months as my previous returns to smoking have always been at around 2 months.
Good luck to everyone, I'm actually looking forward to week 3, I think I might have cracked it this time
