Well today has been my offical quit date although I haven't smoked since 3:30pm yesterday (using patches). Worked at home but found it diffcult to concentrate so have done a few jobs round the house. Felt quite anxious this afternoon so went to the gym (only joined last week and first time there). It really helped and I felt great after. My son is here tonight (lives between me and his dad) and it triggered some quite strong cravings when he arrived as he smokes. He hasn't actually smoked as I have asked him not to now that I don't and he is fine with that so has just bought his e-cig with him. I was surprised that his just walking through the door made me want a cigarette. Its going to be difficult at work tomorrow as a few people there smoke!
Although I'm using patches I'm ceratin that my addiction is more psychological than physical. My boyfriend stopped smoking a couple of years ago (we've only been together a year). I don't smoke when I am with him, it can be up to 3-4 days and I don't really have any cravings when I am with him. The minute I leave though I am desparate for a fag....I've even been calling at the shop at the bottom of his road over the last few weeks and can't even wait to get home before lighting up (about 25 mins away).
