Hello everyone I'm Ali and I've been on this site a while but wasn't ready to quit until today, so here goes day 1. I can't believe I actually got up during the night to have my final fix, actually had 2, so now I've set a date have officially become a chain smoker trying to get as many fags in before today......crazy I know! I've quit many times this year but started again when I went to Turkey 2 months ago, the combination of cheap fags (£2.30 for 20) plus margarita in hand (was all inclusive) was too much for the smoker in me and at that price seemed rude not to smoke. I tried to see the smoking cessation nurse but was told theres a 3 week wait and didn't want to still be smoking for another day let alone 3 weeks plus have found nicotine patches only work when I stick them over my eyes so I can't find my fags! Have tried e-cigs, patches, sprays, gum etc but having nosed around this site have decided that maybe I just need the support of like minded people. Any advice for day 1 gratefully received.
