So the die is cast...The dawn of a new era for me... :mrgreen:

After reading about the poster and the stomach bleeds attributed to chewing the gum...I decided to have the patches instead...21mg pumped through the pores of my bronzed skin...Destiny is all good...No smoking paraphernalia in sight to tempt my prying eye...
The tag of pariah need not apply when frequenting a drinking hole...This my friends is certainly a good day for life longevity... 8)

Will keep you updated on the trials and tribulations I know will be ahead...but 30 yrs a smoker...I believe this is a gooder time than ever to finally stub out the smoking habit...once and for good... :)
Many thanks to ALL those who have wished me good luck! :)

2hrs and counting.... :bounce:

the biggest incentive to staying stopped is that you won't ever have to go through the first few days again

and if you've got a path that needs mending or a flat roof needing patching the 'big cough' might save you a few bob

Hi Adonia,

I'm sure your right, Fluffy is probably having the time of her life :P ...you shouldn't worry about her, she'll be home with the extended family soon 8) ...

I bet your happy to hear your hips are in tact ... at least you have something to look forward to the morning ...all that thrusting :lol: :lol:

When will that pack of baccy of yours be empty?

Hi smurf i was gettig through 50g of baccy in two days,about 25/30 roll ups a day i guess,depends what i was doing when i'm working dont get much time to stop and roll them !!
If you can cut out those that you really enjoy, first thing in mornig,after food ,with a drink there the hardest the rest is easy,but i am by no means over it yet,i think i've done the hard bit and that is what keeps me going now.
But health wise i am not coughing up horrible black stuff,keep telling yourself that.
Good luck its worth it.

Hi Lioned...sounds like you smoked as much as me!

I've been smoking normal ciggies, 25-30 a day ..but when drinking, a chain smoker...so I don't think I'll be able to have a drink for a looong time , if I want to stay quit!!

Hearing from the likes of yourself gives me courage to stick to it...Thanks :D

As for the coughing..I've never been a cougher :shock: ..even after 20 years of the vile disease!!...some say that's a bad sign that my system is not repelling it as it should do..but then for the last 10 years or so I've been doing a lot of aerobic exrecise as an option rather than quitting!!!

I'm in day 3 now, and even thought I have never been one to smoke in my bedroom or anywhere other than the sitting room(which has been well spring cleaned now)...in the mornings my bedroom stinks of stale ciggs :shock: ...must be my lungs clearing out..

I've got another question for you!!...Have you put on any weight?

My digestion seems to have shut down...and I'm beginning to look pregnant :lol:

How are you all doing ? Its day 112 for me !! I've been ok today so far as i've been busy and no time to think about it until now.
I have good days and not so good days but keep telling myself that the worst is over.
The first couple of weeks are the hardest so stick with it and it will get better.I was lucky,sort of,as i got a very bad chest infection in January and was really quite ill and went of the fags all together for those two weeks so the 'job' was done for me,but i dont recommend that solution.
I still consider myself a smoker so i dont know at what point,if ever,i will loose the urge altogether.
I gave it up for two years once but then started again!!
Best of luck.

your house has always stunk like that - it's just that you now notice it

just as you will always know by your nose when a smoker comes near you
