So many reasons, but my son.......

Posted in Reasons to quit 22 May 2016

I quit years ago, for 5 years & cant believe that 10 years later I'm still smoking!?! Had been thinking about quitting due to health & finances but then my son went into Treatment & quit everything, including cigarettes!! So proud of him & feel a bit like a hippocrite....what a great incentive!! I'm on Champix - 5th day - ☺ Starting to feel it.

    You're making the changes, that's something to be proud of. Please don't beat yourself up over not stopping before now. It is what it is and things happen for a reason. We are all here to support each other, so feel free to rant and ask questions and generally enjoy getting to hear others taking similar paths. I'm only 3 days in so I'm learning along with you. Keep strong

    3 days smoke free. I couldn't get on with patches or vapour replacements on previous attempts so I'm cold turkey this time. Onto day 4 now. Keep going just take an hour at a time or 30 mins. It's a grieving process. It will get easier just be kind to yourself
