Hi ,my name is Lesley and I am on Day 4 ..... I have quit previously for 5 yrs and for some unknown, totally stupid decision, started again , thinking I could control it and wouldnt become dependant on them again. However, as we all know, they take hold of you very quickly.

I am looking forward to becoming a non smoker again and all the benifits that go with it, and cant wait to wake up in the morning and not think about cigarettes.

  • Hi Lesley, good to meet you, 5 years? Wow that's awesome! At least you know you definitely CAN do it, I know from trying in the past it's impossible to be a social smoker, if you could only smoke when drinking everyone would do it lol, good on you for giving it another go, I wish you well :) xx

  • Cheers Steve,

    I do find these forums useful and as I have quit before i know I might experience different difficulties than last time, and not know how to handle them. I am using a 24mg patch cut into 1/4's as the full strength patches have left me with what can only be described as a 'burn'. Used them before and didnt have a problem with them and reduced the strength as and when the doctor suggested, so this is all new to me

    I am having to use the microtabs in conjunction with my 'little' patch and was wondering if you had ever used them, or know anyone that has?

  • hi lesley!

    well done in your 5 year quit! thats amazing..i wish u all the best this time round although of course u will beat the cigarettes once again..im very interestes to know how different u thought life was when you wasnt a smoker xx

  • Life without fags its was soooooooo much better, no need to worry about the weather, whether or not u had enough money to buy fags. Money in ur purse tends to stay there a lot longer when you dont smoke ?!!! haha.

    :)

    It nice to have nothing controlling the way you live your life and no kids nagging me to quit. Makes you wonder why I ever started again hey ????

  • Welcome to the forum, make this your forever quit, NOPE is the only way to go :)
