I'm laura, 26 and finally convincing myself its time. Have tried a couple of serious attempts in the past- and more recently have been going a day or two- but giving back in and buying a pack.
Lately I have been feeling all the negative feelings associated with smoking, lack of energy, not concentrating, headaches, nausea. It was getting me so frustrated- I even did the dreaded calculator test and was shocked at how much I spent.
So on the 10th I put on a patch, and made a choice! However- honestly I did stupidly have plans that eve and after many a glass of wine, pinched a cigarette- then was sick the whole evening. But thanks to it making me sick, It's made me more determined. So I didn't class the 10th as a day- and started from scratched on the 11th.
Just finished day 3! I'm proud, feeling very positive and thankfully I'm not even craving stupid amounts of chocolate!!
I have the quit kit calendar on my fridge- the email and text support and even the app to help see how much I'm saving- and it's really positive too have all that support.
But- Would love a quit buddy if anyone is interested!!! You can never have too many supportive people around you.
Thank you for reading- I'm really excited to begin this journey!!
Good luck to everyone else who is quitting, hopefully we can all do it xxx
