It starts tomorrow

I am 40 and have smoked between ten and twenty a day for 22 years! how did that happen.

Tonight is my last night as a smoker. At some point I have to stop "trying" to give up and just give up.

have been to the doctor and am on the tablets. They say wait untikl day 8 but I want to stop now.

I have decided that there is no fun, in cigarettes any more. I have smoked rollies, every brand, fat ones, thin ones, cigarellas etc etc. It has nothing new to offer me. So why bother. I know it will be a fight between me and myself but I want to prove to myself that I can win. For good. For my son who aged 5 has never seen me smoke but suffered the consequences of me "checking the rabbits" every hour. For my partner. But most of all for me.

I will need help and support along the way... i hope this forum will help.

It feels like I am in a relationship that was fun at first and then turned bad, that I have been trying to leave for years because it is (literally in this case) posionous. So I am leaving. Its over. Its not you its me.

Great way of thinking about giving up smoking.....'a relationship that's gone bad' Keep that in mind, and you'll do just fine! Good luck :D

Thank you

So far so good! Have kept myself very busy and am doing fine...

Thanks for the messages of support. It means a lot


The day has been fine... easy. Now though I am struggling - this is probably my favourite cigarette of the day. Kids tea done, cleared up and I get to go in garden for 5 minutes peace and a smoke. Am chewing gum furiously.... and now typing furiously... but i knew it would be like this. in some ways the day seemed too easy. paying for it now...

It will pass It will pass
