I started writing a mammoth story but felt that was far too much info, so here is the condensed version:
Read Allen Carr – brilliant!! Gave up smoking on the 15[SUP]th[/SUP] June 2014. Went on holiday on the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] August 2014 and smoked all week – approx 5-10 a day. Gave up AGAIN 11[SUP]th[/SUP] August 2014. Started smoking again on 25[SUP]th[/SUP] December through till 24[SUP]th[/SUP] January 2015.
Brought Allen Carr’s follow up book and stopped AGAIN. Was sooo positive this time. Was offered a cigarette on 5[SUP]th[/SUP] April and have been on and off since then.
I gave up again yesterday after I smoked approx 15 a day for 3 days.
I hate it. I am a runner and a singer. I went running last night and nearly coughed a lung up. I got a horrible nasty burning pain in my throat too. This was the reason I decided today was time to try again. I also have 2 gigs this weekend and have no idea if I have damaged my voice over the last week.
I just wonder if anyone else has experienced similar failings? I tell myself that smoking will destroy the 2 things I enjoy doing the most and yet still fall back into this trap. I have just bought Allen Carrs book again as I had a really old version. I am hoping that a newer edition might be easier to relate to.
