Hi everyone, I am new to this forum.
I have decided to quit after nearly 9 years of smoking, as I am sick of coughing my guts up every morning, and to be honest I just don't enjoy it anymore.
I started smoking when I was 14, and I am 23 in a couple of weeks time.
I have a little boy of 4 who has special needs, so life can be quite stressful at times, but I am so determined!
I decided to quit cold turkey as I don't want to give up fags, then get reliant on something else instead.
I have been reading this forum for the last couple of days and I have decided to join. My partner wants to quit too but he gave in yesterday at about 3.20pm, but I stuck through, I think he is going to need a little more help in form of NRT!
Anyway, I am on Day 2, and boy, don't I know it.
I woke up this morning with a banging headache, no cravings as such, just light headed, head hurts, feeling a bit 'monged out' and restless. I don't think I realised the physical aspect of quitting like this! I am just going to keep myself busy today, and try and get rid of this fuzzy feeling I am getting!
I have been told day 3 is the worst day, so I'm not looking forward to tomorrow at all!
