So I took the decision to join the rest of the January quitters on new years day and am still going. I'm on high strength patches at the moment and will probably stay on them for a few weeks at least. I'd love to say I was going CT but I've tried and failed with that too many times to take the risk!
I started smoking when I was 17 (6 years back now) with a 9-month quit in 2012. A few too many Christmas Eve drinks saw that one off - I WON'T be making that mistake again! I used the forum last time and found it a great help to hear the success stories of others and to chat with those going through the same stages as me.
So I'm hoping it will be of similar use this time. I'm feeling pretty strong at the moment but you never know when the next craving is coming.
I'll report back on day 7!
