My first post though I've been lurking around hoovering up all your good advice, so it's time for a very big thank you. I quit on the 1st of January. Not my first attempt obviously! You don't smoke for 30 years without thinking 'You know what I might need to stop doing this now.'
I've done patches, cold turkey and Alan Carr but always caved in after 4-5 weeks. This time I'm using lozenges which are good but the biggest difference is reading the posts here. Every situation or concern that I feel is written about somewhere here and always with lots of encouraging replies. I feel like I've got hundreds of people rooting for me.
My bloke is a non smoker so although he's supportive he doesn't feel my pain, that's so melodramatic but you all know what I mean and that's why I love reading the threads.
I think my favourite piece of advice is NOPE, and it's become my new mantra.
I'm starting week 7 tomorrow depite a horrendous last 2 days in work which I know I would not have conquered without being here. Starting to wonder what I ever saw in that smoking lark. Thanks to everybody but especially those who've fallen off the wagon and carry on posting so that others don't make the same mistakes. You are brill.
