I've just found this forum and thought I'd join in! I smoked approx 15-20 roll ups a day for around 6 years on and off. I'm currently on day 11 of my smoke free journey using NRT 21mg patches! This is probably my 5th time of attempting to quit over the years but this time I feel is the most positive and I feel like I will never go back to it. The first week was the hardest part for me but after pushing through it I can honestly say the second week feels so much easier. I'm noticing so many benefits of quitting already - I can breathe so much better, exercise is a breeze now compared to a couple of months ago, I'm generally more relaxed and positive around other people, I have more money, my teeth feel less sensitive? An odd benefit but it definitely makes a difference. My brain feels sharper and on the ball in most of my day. For anyone out there who is going through their first week and struggling - push through!! It is so worth it.
If anyone needs any tips or motivation to keep going please let me know! I'd be happy to help anybody going through this!
Also, if anyone has any tips feel free to tell me :)
Onwards and upwards!
