5 cigarettes left - eek!!

5 ciggies left in the packet that I said would be my last.....

So do I just smoke them quickly and get it over with?

Do I make them last?

Should I buy 10 more so that actually I stop tomorrow morning, which somehow feels like it would be easier than stopping mid day (well it would wouldn't it :D)

I had intended cold turkey but should I try patches? gum?

Feeling rather nervous now the day has arrived so hoping the support and experiences of others in a similar position will help me on my journy

  • Hi Mina

    You've done the hard part you've decided to quit!

    My advice is don't put off until tomorrow what can be done today - if you said you will stop after these last ones then why buy any more??? stick to your guns!!

    I used patches for the first couple of weeks, then stopped as they kept coming off and decided to go it alone, but everyone is different and go with what makes your quit easy - no use torturing yourself if its easy with nrt :)

  • Thank you both - confirmation of what I thought was the best way to go....

    I have itchy fingers now - to start posting on the Day 1 thread :)

  • Oooh good luck. You'll do fine!

  • Hi Mina

    I have found stopping during the day is better as you have less hours to deal with before going to bed and then day one is done quicker. I f your nervous I think patches might be a good idea not such a shock to the system. Smoke the cigarettes you have today and then put a patch on later. It is less painful than you think once you do it. So try what have you got to lose. x

    What she said :D excellent plan!! And then if u feel like it u can join us at the January freedom fighters social group where we are going through the early days like u will be... Best of luck u can do it!! Xx

    P.s sorry Deb but "what Deb said" doesn't sound right lmao :D xx

  • Thanking you all for the support....

    My last cigarette is lit and burning as I type.

    I have bought patches.

    I have joined this forum.

    I have joined the Freedom Fighters group.

    I have worked out that in 6 weeks I can buy the telescope I have always wanted but thought too costly at £300.

    I have something nice to cook for dinner.

    I have sweets to suck and gum to chew.

    I have a full day planned for tomorrow.

    Bring it on - let day 1 begin - this quit is well overdue :)

    Stubbing it out and declaring myself QUIT!
