I'm new to the forum and this is day 20 for me. I've been watching and waiting for my account to be approved - it took a while but I'm on now! This is my third serious go and the last 2 times I've made it to 6 months and blown it all away by thinking I could just have one or two. I've been smoking for more than 30 years and know that I now need to knock it on the head for good before I hit 50. I'm constantly working on my mindset and I definitely feel a lot happier now that I'm smoke-free. Weekends are hardest but I just keep on reminding myself why I'm doing this. Before I stopped, I was always worried about the effect on my health and felt ashamed to be a smoker. Now I feel chuffed that I don't have to try and hide it. My fingers don't need to be scrubbed with a pumice stone, my hair and breath don't stink and I can breathe easier. The hacking cough has gone. I'm taking it a day at a time and I'm looking forward to not having,to think about it too much!
