So i made a deal that i was going to quit smoking when i got back from my 2nd holiday in July as i know this is a major trigger for me.
Somehow my mind suggested that i start with the e cig to cut down before then in preperation. so i planned in my head to continue doing both until july.
amazingly i am down to 1 a day (3 since wednesday afternoon) already and kindof thinking that this is moving a bit quicker than expected.
the other thing that has surprised me is that the e cig is definitley helping, no doubt about it, but i am not as reliant on it as i thought i would be. i expected to be puffing away willy nilly but im keeping it in line with my normal smoking habits if not less. i know some disagree but for me if the e cig gets me off the fags im not bothered about the nicotine element at this stage.
motivator 1: i got my car valeted yesterday and what a delight getting into a smoke free car. motivater 2: MY TASTE HAS SO RETURNED.food yum yum, yum. even jelly and yoghurt yesterday tasted the most divine food ever. (note to self: must increase excercise to avoid becoming a roly poly)
motivator 3: I am doing this all by myself - how proud am i.
But despite all of this, i am heading away next weekend with a little trepidation of "oh well im on holidays so it doesnt really matter if i smoke". Ive so got to break that mindset - ive got one week to do it so if i could just get off the cigs altogether it would be a great start
thanks for allowing me to ramble, rant, talk etc etc.....
