I have smoked for 25 years, 20 a day. I quit smoking 15 years ago for 6 months and then one fag led to another....I've since, always been too scared to stop. I am 7 years clean from drugs and alcohol and I do not want to smoke anymore.
I've made the decision to quit, I just need to do it! I've been reading all your posts on here (hiding in the background) for a few weeks. I can see there are so many of you that have quit and I am using that as inspiration for me. I also wanted to stop being a bystander and join in...I want some of that freedom you all have.
I've just finished the Alan Carr book - I didn't get a lightbulb moment after reading, but did highlight alot of it and was a different spin on things. I also went earlier this week to see my local stop smoking advise service and am armed with 7 days worth of patches and some lozenges - tomorrow, is my quit date (gulp). I'm half scared / half excited at the prospect - is it possible that I could be a non-smoker?!
