Before I get into the kind of advice I need, let me explain my situation.
I was 16, 3 years ago, when I started smoking. I am now smoking between 20-30 a day, particularly at night. It gets worse, about a year ago I began taking kapake, a highly addictive pain killer with 30mg of codeine. The result of the 2? In the last year I've dropped from 13 to 8 stone, at 6ft that's skinny... I can't walk up the stairs without being breathless, I've been asked by friends and family if I'm a cracking addict due to my complexion going to hell.
I've become a hermit, and I dropped out of uni due to my issues. I can't talk to anyone about it because it's so scandalous, my dad's a doctor and mother a executive area manager for asda. I've got a second chance for Cambridge uni in 3 months and want to be my old self again.
I'm moving to my grand parents house for 1 week in 2 hours. Not going out, no money, I want to be clean. I doubt anyone can help in terms of the codeine addiction, but for smoking:
- how do I keep myself busy and not think about cigs?
- when will I notice a steep decline in urges?
- any tips on how to hold back urges in a social environment?
- similar stories and general tips would be appreciated!
I know I posted a lot, just needed to tell someone. Thanks everyone!
