Gave up smoking 3 weeks ago today Cold Turkey as i didn`t want to have to wean myself off nicotine later on by using patches etc. So far so good despite the awful cravings first week and the insomnia. The times i most miss my cigs are first thing in the morning with my coffee and after each meal, but every day that passes without lighting up is such a bonus, and the money i would have spent each day has been saved by in a jar (to be donated to a chosen charity soon). The thing that made it all much easier to do, was the news 3 weeks ago that my dear mother in law had been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Just wish i had been able to give up this horrible habit years ago!!!
