Now fast approaching 60 and have smoked since I was 12 or 13. No excuses, just thought it was the 'in' thing to do and got hooked. :confused: Very simple thing getting hooked but the difficult part is setting oneself free!
Went cold turkey in early March and find it very easy for nearly 2 months but then, don't ask cos I don't know, started smoking again and now back on 20 to 25 daily.
Health is my main reason for quitting with the money saved being a bonus which will hopefully mean that I can retire early but as cigs are a contributory factor in less oxygen in the blood then health has to be the first and foremost reason.
Intend going cold turkey again as have tried nrt and e-cigs both of which I found made me want a proper ciggie more so have tried to put a plan into action but time will tell if that is successful or not.
Monday, 15th July, is the day I have had in mine mind for a while so, whatever the reasoning behind that may be, that is the start of my trek to a smoke free life.
I intend doing everything in my power to ensure that this time not only will I be successful but that success will carry on, and on, and on.
