Good evening everybody, and I hope your all having a lovely smoke free evening :) :)

For those who dont know me, I'm Pete, erm, I'm sort of part of the fixtures & fittings around here :o even our Emjay has to come and dust the cobwebs off me now and again :D :D

I relapsed a few days ago after very nearly getting to 5 Months quit ! sooooo please all of you be aware eh :o After struggling with my 1 brain cell to reach a new quit date, I finally have, and its today 3rd March 2014 :)

I am using the 25 mg 16 hour patches, and 2mg lozenges for the hard times ! These are ok when I'm driving and at work, BUT when I get home its a different matter, cos I like a drink of lager you see :| and lager & lozenges dont really go together :P :D so I'm using an inhalator with a 10mg cartridge in it :)

Rite, Day 1, its not been too bad actually, I drove too and from work without having a lozenge :) and I only had 2 lozenges at work, which were after my breaks, cos I was used to having you know what after a meal :o So that wasnt too bad :)

I got home tonight and walked into the house, then it hit me !! I tell you I could have ripped my hair out for a smoke :o Soooo I gave the inhalator some flippin kissing, then went into my garage and dived onto my rowing machine, and dint half give it some wellie !! Got off there puffing, panting and coughing :o but it worked I got rid of mr nic :P :)

I went back in the house, had my shower and dins, with the help of the breathing exercise too, so far ok :) Still having to kiss the inhalator now and again though, but what the heck, I aint smoking, thats the main point :)

PS, am sorry for boring you all, flippin tuff :P :P :D :D :D

Here's to happy days my friends, Pete :) xx

All the best to you Pete. They say the world doesn't love a quitter, but we really do on here :) Don't stop quitting, you can do it, and have not smoked sooooo many fags because of keeping quitting that your lungs and everything are so much better for it.

Hats off to you Pete! Great respect from me!

You are an inspiration to me, so go Pete! No fags today! One day at a time :)

Well done. It's a hard slog but worth it in the end. I am now on day 22 no smoking. I would have smoked 440 cigs. I am on the patches 21mg. Your suppost to wear them for 24 hours but I find by 6/7pm I'm ready to remove it. Good luck

I'm with Betts, just think of all the ciggies you haven't smoked rather than the odd few you have. Good luck Pete, just gotta keep on trucking along.

Hi Pete, thinking of you. I had a smoke free evening thanks to quit clinic and a very good friend who came out and walked 8 miles in the cold with me (she's never even smoked!). It's blinkin hard but you can do it, you've already done 5 months, falling off the wagon is just a glitch in your long and smoke free life

Not sure why or how I've found this?? Is this from back in the day when you initially quit monky? Day 1 here too and the idea to post everyday for a while takes seed! Thanks, 4Today
