Stumbled across this forum whilst googling what to expect...
22 year old, been smoking 7 years, 20 a day.
Made the decision to quit last thursday time, last cigarette was sunday bedtime. Used a stage 2 patch mon, tues, wed and took myself off them today. Have been using an e-cig, but more for the feel, rather than the smoking of it! I actually found a deal online for a starter pack for £3.99, so when that has arrived and the filters have run out, I'll be taking myself off that too.
I'm surprised I've made it this far however I can honestly say i'm not finding it TOO difficult. I live with 2 smokers and even them smoking around me isn't bothering me.
I tried quitting once before, but my head wasn't really in it like it is this time, I think I lasted 4 hours :rolleyes:
My only concern at the minute is the fact I cannot imagine NOT smoking again. Its obviously just the 'norm' for me and its strange thinking about a future without fags in it!
Very happy with the weight of my savings pot though I have decided exactly 4 weeks after the date I quit, I'll open it and go and treat myself - certainly looking forward to that.
I'm a little bit narked at the minute about it, Im not sure if its a genuine thing to be pee'd off about or its the coming off the cigarettes but I did expect a lot more support, encouragement and praise. Paticularly off my boyfriend considering he absolutely hated me smoking, asked me to quit a lot of times, but i'm getting nothing at all off him. He's not asked me once how i'm getting on We dont live together but I expected something, even him asking how i'm finding it and maybe a well done but NO. Sweet f all. Its actually quite upsetting.
But yes, enough whining! Hi guys! Good luck to you all quitting and well done to you who have kicked the habit, I hope to be joining you for good!
