I smoked my last cigarette at 3.30pm today. I realise the title of my post may appear foolish at the moment but it will look better and better as time passes.
Having smoked for 24 years, I stopped cold turkey for 10 weeks from Feb - May this year. I then relapsed and am back to the same levels of smoking that I was at before ie 15-20 cigs a day.
My motivations for stopping are to be around for my young family, to stop being a slave to nicotine and for health and financial reasons.
My main fear related to smoking cessation is the physical nicotine withdrawal.
My hope is that writing about my experience of stopping smoking on this site will provide some level of catharsis.
I am interested in hearing from other people who have recently stopped smoking.
