Time to bite the bullet (again)...

Hello all,

This will be my third attempt at quitting -I adopted the 'slap-a-patch-to-me' approach as of today (my Nicorette inhalator is also staying close by)...

My last quit attempt lasted for over a year, sadly I caved last November and was quickly back up to 20 a day. The niggling cough and embarrassing tobacco niffs swiftly returned (as well as a lightness of purse contents).

Anyways, I've been a having a read through of quite a lot of posts -'well done' to those further down the road of their journey and 'congratulations' to those who are just starting -it's great to see such a supportive environment:)

I hope that this time, I manage to be a non-smoker for keeps... For now, I'll take each day as it comes ;)

Louise.

Hiya Louise and welcome :D

Oh I know exactly what you mean, I quit or a long time last year and failed about a week before you - and yes the smells (nothing like being a heavy smoker while you can still smell *blech*) plus the expense - and for what? - are minging!!

We're here to help so any time you need help, support or anything please post :D

You can do this, you will do this!!

Welcome Louise :D

Sounds like you have a good plan in place and know exactly what you need to do :D

Hi Louise

Nice to meet you, fairplay for taking the plunge again, it proves though you quit for nearly a year went back to smoking and now quitting again so being a non smoker obviously suits you more :)

I'm on the patches too, they seem to be really helping, will look forward to your posts on the quitting section and we are all right behind you, good luck! Xx

Thanks for the lovely messages :)

Welcome aboard and well done on decoding to quit again

You will get lots of support from the great people here

Xxxxxxxx
