I am a 54 year old woman who has smoked for 36 years.
I have attempted quitting around 10 times over the past 20 years,managing to last 18months the last time I tried ( around 7 years ago) I notice how bad my skin looks,how much phlegm I have every morning and how much my apartment smells. So,armed with patches and determined to successfully wipe this addiction from my system,I am here.
Reading over the stories I am inspired and motivated.
I have been smoke free for 3 days now and have been ,let's say, very wobbly at times. Today the urge to light up got me to the point where I had found a butt somewhere gross, retrieved a lighter and it was in my hand .Ready to go.
I said out loud " what are you doing you nong,put that down and do some work" And I did.
Last night on a long phonecall with my mum I picked a fight with her, then just cried like a baby to her.
really hoping this passes soon so I can feel a bit more steady within myself.
So glad this resource exists,I have setup a savings box,I will put the cash I save weekly in there.And I will have this site open all the time on my computer and phone so I can lean right in!!!
Thanks for being here.
