today is my fifth day going cold turkey, i have tried champix, patches,e-cig,chewing gum, lozenges all to no avail, i found i had to be weaned off all of them. so ive decided to go cold turkey. when my urges get the better of me i have to get up and do something. in fact today will be my 5 n half day because i quit on wed 8/3/17 at 4.30pm. i am now going round my home washing everything because i can smell it on everything. people and things now smell like soot. if you can remember what soot smells like. im not saying i have won or that i have quit, i am taking a day at a time and each day i do i mark with a star, my stars are beginning to mount up. and my urges only last a moment or two. fingers crossed for me as i have been trying for so long. i have been a smoker for almost 50 years.
