So here is my story to date. I began to feel like I was visiting a drug dealer for a fix when buying cigarettes, so after 40 years of smoking a pack a day I decided to set my birthday of 15th February 2020 as quit day which was six weeks ahead.
The big idea was to cut down to maybe five cigarettes a day before finally quitting the dreaded weed, but as the days went by one by one I started to dread arriving at the 15th and having to suddenly give up, thus 19 days early on 28th January at 9.45am I smoked my last cigarette having decided it was easier to just give up then drag it out so to speak.
Having bought nicotine gum which was a great help during the first three weeks, but after reading Alan Carr’s giving up smoking book I came to realise that I was not addicted to smoking cigarettes but in fact I was addicted to the drug- nicotine which was a great help to stop the gum as well.
Its being an interesting journey so far and I can hardly believe that it is nearly seven months since my last cigarette.
