I am new to the forum and have managed to go 8 days & 20 hours without smoking now.
I am determined to quit for good and at current I am finding it relatively straight forward.
I have gone cold turkey and the only side effects I can say I have felt to date is a mouthful of ulcers and I feel tired a lot more!
I have been reading this forum from day 1 of my quit and would just like to say it has helped hearing of other peoples battles.
I wasn't a huge smoker and have been on 10 a day for the past 16 years or so, perhaps a few more at weekends.
With the bank holiday weekend just gone, I was dreading going to the pub and out socialising, however I managed to go to the pub everyday since Friday and I have not faltered once, its a great feeling!
Anyways I thought I would introduce myself and will post updates as and when I can.
