Hi everybody. I am 48 and have smoked since I was 11, with a 6 month gap in 2015/6.
Last year my goal was to lose weight so I lost 4 stone by October.
This year my goal is to live healthier so I very rarely drink now AND I smoked my last cigarette on the 23rd January so I am now 10 days in.
I did use a nicotine replacement patch for one day but since then I have gone cold turkey.
After the first 4 days I found I wasn't really thinking about cigs, maybe just a couple of times a day. If I do find my mind wandering I just go and get a glass of water. It soon passes.
I really hope the next few months will be as easy as this, only time (and stresses of life) will tell.
Thanks for reading and for any words of encouragement ☺
