Hi all Merry Christmas,
Well I have been stopped smoking for 23 weeks tomorrow, time flys when your having fun. Been out and about and enjoying not getting wet for a stinker, feeling sorry for my friends who are desperate to stop. I still miss the social side to smoking but I just stand with my friends now while they smoke when its not raining and its ok I still don't fancy one!
I'm still using 7mg patches, but I don't mind iv asked my smoking nurse to keep me on them until after the new year as I ended up with very bad anxiety and anyone who has never had it, believe me its not nice! The patches are small but boy do I no about it if they come off the anxiety starts, has any one else suffered with anxiety after stopping smoking? I'm not ashamed to say I'm addicted to nicotine big time like but to me a patch is better than 20 tabs.
Still 2lbs to loose and I'm back to the weight I was the day I stopped smoking. Can't wait for my 6months in January, feeling very proud.
Anyone struggling, keep with it. My mates can't believe I'm still stopped as they know how much I used to love tabs, but now I swear I don't even think of them£1000 now, well I did but I spent it on a new bed.
