Last attempt.

Posted in Getting started 17 Jan 2012

Hi I am day 4 on Champix and am determined that this time I will be smoke free for the rest of my life. I have tried quitting before, once I lasted for 2 and half years. I am so determined this time that I have plans to stop myself from being weak and using smoking as my "stress" relief.  I have started to plan my diet and exercise regime. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all and supporting you on yours.

    I had my first cigarette at the age of 13, I used to smoke at the bus stop and at school. By 17 I was smoking 10 a day. This increased to 20 a day and I was 39 when I gave up and had all the right reasons. I was good for 2 and a half years but was drinking with friends and had one cigarette, that was enough to undo all the good.
    Today I have set up my exercise room with TV and equipment, so I am motivated.
