hi to all my new chums and fellow quitters... I have a confession. Even though I am still 3 days from my official quit date I have been preparing and cutting down but have to admit i fell over at the weekend
I cut down the previous week from 25-30 a day to 12-15 a day without too much effort and I guess I got a bit complacent. Long story short a domestic spat on Friday had me back on the vino and back to 25-30 fags all over the weekend. Back on track-ish from Monday but it did bring it home to me that this is not gonna be a walk in the park and I need to have a strategy for such situations, bearing in mind the local fag shop is one minutes walk from my house.
I think I am well prepared initially.. I have NRT in place, I have my list of reasons printed and ready to go, I have an appointment with the cessation clinic on 28th April (soonest i could get), I have created a spreadsheet which tells me every day in BIG text how much money I have saved so far, and I have even got a Spring Clean My Life plan which lists all the things that are bugging me about my life and what I am going to do about each one, smoking being number 1 on the list.
However I was unprepared for how easy it was for my will power to go out the window at the first sign of a drama. I really need to get strategy in place for such situations as they are bound to occur on a regular basis and, as i said before, the fag shops is so close!
Any advice welcome ☺️
