    I got my appointment from the nhs quit smoking.I decided to do the patches and here i am on my first day, feeling great, not craving for a fag atm.Usually i have had 5 by now.Lol
    I will be going into town later so my mind will be occupied and wont think about it.The lady said well done on losin weight and quit smoking at the same time, she said i wont tell you it will be easy as it wont, but she said you can do it.

    Good luck, I am sure you can do it. I think you are quitting at the best time, as if you waited until after you had reached your target weight - they say when some people quit smoking they comfort eat. So in my opinion although it won't be easy, I think you are doing it at a good time & it will do wonders for your health - so well done.

    Good on you for quitting. I think doing both is the way to go as you cant use food as a crutch for no ciggies and you cant use ciggies as a crutch for no food. It def wont be easy but sounds like you are well on the way.
    After a few weeks of CD and no ciggies you will be feeling absolutely brand new - what a treat to yourself for Christmas.
    Why not put the money you would be spending on cigs away and treat yourself in the January sales to some new clothes to show off how much weight you've lost.
