Today is my Day 1. My plan is to go cold turkey and replace times that
I would have had a cigarette with a walk around the block (it's a small block!) OR with a carrot stick. My partner is a smoker and will smoke this evening at our end of work day chat. That will be hard! Fingers crossed.
I started smoking when I was 16. I was disgusted by it by the age of 18, tried zillion ways and nothing seemed to work.
