New challenge...giving up smoking!!!

#1
Well, I've been a smoker on and off since I was 14 , so thats......27ish years!! Yesterday Hubby and I decided we would try to give up today, we finished our last packet of tobacco this morning and I don't intend to buy anymore. Its only 3 hours since my last fag and I'm dying, I've cleaned the house done all the washing , just to keep me occupied, I'm at work for the next 4 days so that shouldn't be too bad, Hubby's madly hammering outside finishing a boat he's building and probably driving the neighbours mad.
Anyway all good intentions, health and finance, basically can't afford it anymore.
:smoke:

Hiya.......well done on deciding to give up, i can empatise with how you are feeling. I too smoked from the age of 14 and gave up 5 years ago at the age of 28, so had smoked half my life:eek:

I did have a few failed attempts but got there in the end. Its so worth it, so do your best, you will get there xx

Hi,

I also started smoking at 14 and whilst I was never slim, my weight was normally between 11 and 11.5 stone when I decided to quit at the age of 25! I am really proud to say it will be my 17th year anniversary at the end of the month and I have never touched another to this day :D:D:D The only problem is I gained 4 stone in the 1st year then more with each of my 2 girls :eek: so I really understand how hard it is to give up the dreaded weed! If only I had the same willpower now with my weigt loss eh....

Good luck to you when you give it another go... you WILL do it :)
