As a technologically challenged person it's taken me some time to register on here. But I've managed.
I started smoking in the 60's when I was 15. I smoked regularly until I was expecting my third child at the age of 32. At this point cigarettes made me feel sick, so I gave up with no problem and never had the time or the inclination to start again for 20 years.
When I was about 52, I thought I'd try smoking again...You know..Just the odd social one! Haaaa!!! Eleven years later and I'm still at it. 20 a day habit just like before.
A severe chest infection and considering how much money it had cost me to develop it, has made me seriously consider what I'm doing. Am I mad?
I've been reading this forum and seen some excellent advice and I'm hoping that it'll give me some extra support when I need it.
I have patches and have downloaded Allen Carr's Book (recommended by my hairdresser) and mentioned on here.
I've now stopped for 43 hours!!!!
