    Default Trying Again

    Right I am trying again to quit.

    Harry ordered me the Quit Kit from the NHS, bless his heart.

    I last had a ciggie about 10.30pm last night.

    I am actually not doing to badly at the moment, I am just really really tired because J has been up half the night.

    So excuse me if I type waffle over the next few days, or there are odd facebook status' - its just something to do!!! lol

    Read Allan Carr's book!

    Get yourself some patches / a thingy you suck on / gum... whatever gets you through the first week without all the chemicals your body thinks it needs.

    then when you're through the first few weeks wean yourself off the nicotine.

    Don't try and do it on your own or all at once you are more likely to fail.

    If there's a stop smoking group near you, join it!!

    Good luck you can do it!

    Make sure you dont just stop and go cold turkey!! you need to use the patches or gum or the pen.

    I know how hard it is as i gave up 5 years ago this May bank holiday. I used the patches for 1 week then found out i was pregnant so i had to go cold turkey but what an insentive i had to give up!!!

    Wishing you lots of luck and your doing fab already

    I have just given up and have now gone 7 weeks smoke free. It does get easier but i am still having the odd craving now. I have been using the patches and i also got myself an electronic cigarette. It is the same sort of thing as the inhulator that you get from the chemist except it works electronically. It just gives you a little kick of nicotine without all the chemicals that come in cigarettes but the best bit is that you inhale and then exhale what looks like smoke but is actually water vapour so there is no smell. You pay once for the cigarette but then just buy top up cartridges which come in loads of different flavours. I also ordered the quit kit from the NHS and to be honest it wasn't worth the hassle.
    PM me if you want the website address for these as i don't know if i can advertise it on here.

    GOOD LUCK

    Pip, giving up smoking is hard but achievable and really really worthwhile . . . I havent smoked for 10 years now but OMG I did enjoy smoking and know that I am only one ciggie away from being a smoker again . . . fell pregnant with my eldest and was SO SICK I couldnt smoke.

    When you get the munchies, get a tupperware and put in carrot sticks, cherry tomatos, sugar snaps, cucumber, celery and use that to help you through the tough times and to keep your hands occupied. One day at a time . . . YOU CAN DO IT!!!! . . . I KNOW YOU CAN . . . I KNOW YOU CAN
