I had to go into hospital for surgery on Wednesday so I decided to use it as an opportunity to quit smoking, I've tried to quit before many times and failed, normally I don't get past the first week. I've been a smoker for 22 years and I hate it. I don't want to throw any more money at it and I want to protect my health as I'm very healthy in every other aspect of my life.
I had my last cigarette at 8am on Wednesday 2nd April, I had my surgery and stayed in hospital overnight and came home yesterday (Thursday) evening, I'm guessing all the pain meds I'm on are masking the cravings and because I'm not doing normal things the habit element isn't as noticable. I have an e-cig if I need it and have used it a couple of times, more holding it in my mouth than inhaling though.
I'm hoping that by the time I am due to go back to work next Tuesday I'll have got past the worst of it as my job is one where smoking is very common in fact a fag break is the only break you get and most of my colleagues are smokers so it's going to be tough if I'm in the heavy craving stage.
I'm worried about weight gain as I can't afford to change size as I've already bought a special dress for a friends wedding and it has to fit, any tips would be appreciated.
I am determind to beat it this time, I will be a ex smoker!!
