Bad time to quit?

I’ve picked a really bad time to quit. Today is day 4. Next week it’s my mums funeral. She had cancer but never smoked or drank but she hated smoking and I don’t want to smoke at the funeral or be desperate to do so. So far it’s been easier than expected with patches and mints. I haven’t even got a patch on today and only had one nRT mint. I gave up 18 months ago but never managed to stop vaping. This is also expensive and long term nobody knows what harm it does. I was only on the cigs for a week up it had crept back to 20 a day. This time I’m hoping to stop smoking and vaping too! If I can get through Wednesday I’m sure I’ll be fine!

Hi Pedro1, how are you getting on? Congratulations on quitting, you have done exceptionally well. Do let us know how you are doing. Anna@Quit4Life


Pedro . . . what would you're mum want you to do? Certainly not smoke and you have managed to get this far so stop finding an excuse to smoke and get some support. I hope you get through the funeral and stay away from the smoking mourners after the service. Look after yourself mate. Robin

I had a few set backs. It’s been a very stressful time since Xmas. I didn’t get on with the patches at all so o decided to try the e cigs and getting on much better. Doesn’t feel like I’ve quit though!
