I have started the process in quitting. I used to smoke about 15 rollies a day. I have started using patches and chewing gum. So story so far is that I have two cigs in the morning. Then after about 9 am I stop smoking. I can go all day during work and not have a single puff. I get home at around 6pm. I would have then have another cig after dinner and then one more just before i go to bed. So that's 4 cigarettes a day. The strange thing is that I can go without cigarettes during the day even in my most stressful periods. It is the boredom when I get home that really gets to me. I associate relaxation with cigarettes which is going to be difficult for me. After a couple of weeks I'm going to try and tackle the night ritual. Then another month or so I'm going to tackle the morning ritual. I do realise the fact that by smoking in the mornings and night I am stepping back into that cycle.
