So after failing in my last couple of quit attempts I decided to have a break from quitting and regroup. I have since decided that it is time to really go for it - I was diagnosed with bronchitis at Christmas and have had a cough ever since. As well as that, I did my grade 5 exam in musical theatre and got a distinction but my teacher has said she won't put me forward for grade 6 until I quit smoking so this is an added incentive. I smoked my last cig just before midnight and put on a patch. I also have a quick mist spray for any major cravings but have had none so far. I actually feel sick at the thought of having a cig so I believe this is the time I will succeed.
I look forward to catching up with old friends and making some new ones and know that the forum is welcoming, friendly and supportive so I'm glad to be able to reconnect.
