Delay, Deep breathe, Drink water, Do something else.

I had a slip up yesterday at 3.30pm when my partner got home(usual routine). I had 1 and my god did it taste wrong!
So with that thought in my mind there will be none today and forever.
Im actually feeling better already if you could kinda get my drift.

Good on you Sam.. keep reminding yourself of that horrible taste and smell, the way it ages you, the horrible things it does to your skin, the way your hands smell of smoke after, the yellow stains on the teeth...

DDDD

you can do it :) we're all cheering for you!

I'm quitting as well and I think I'm on my way.

I didn't go for the patches or anything like that, but just to cut it out slowly.

I use to do a pack a day, then a pack in 3 days, then a week. Now I'm down to probably just 1 ciggie a day, sometimes none.

Doing it this way will take a while but I think because you're gradually cutting it out, it's not as 'painful'.

Take up a hobby or something that keeps you distracted.

A strong bitter cup of tea always helps me curb cravings.

Hope this helps!!
