So, I was doing well. I was on day 6 then had an unexpected drinking session which led to smoking. I also had a hangover and I am not built to deal with hangovers so I'm right back to day 1 again.
I woke up this morning, lifted a patch and my spray and am glad to say it was about 1.30pm before I put the patch on. I could say I wish I hadn't had a drink (or 8) at the weekend but there is no point in regretting. So, I'm back to the start again and raring to go. Day 1 is nearly over and it hasn't been too bad so far. No regrets, just onwards and upwards. And posting if I need to get advice or just vent.
