To all those who I know from my time here, Hello again. To those I don't, I look forward to getting to know you all.
Like most, I have tried and failed on numerous occasions to quit smoking. Over the last couple of weeks I have been using an ecig to cut down. The final straw came this morning (I still haven't smoked a cig yay) when I got to the top of my small hill and found myself huffing and wheezing like I have never done before. So I am now sittign in work with my ecig and have used it a few times. I will take it when I need it and can see myself strolling round the block a few times but I suppose anything is better than smoking.
The long term goal is to quit nicotine but the short term for me is to get off the cigs and onto the ecig. I don't care if it means that I am using the ecig for any length of time because it's still better than the alternative. I am not putting any pressure on myself this time round as that seems to lead to failure for me. I'm just aiming to get through today and take it from there (one day at a time using whatever method I need to use).
I look forward to the encouragement I will get and the advice and good wishes that come along with it. Just aiming to get through the next few hours because, I have to face it, that's all a day is.
