Time to Quit

The time has come. I’m ready & I’ve decided because I want to, not because a million other people feel the need to tell me. I’m quitting smoking.

Yes, yes, I am a smoker. Once you’ve all finished tutting and shaking your heads, I’ll carry on.

I don’t smoke around the children. I’ve never smoked while pregnant, and no, I’m not proud of it, but there we go.

Hubs managed to quit before Xmas with the help of the doctors and a magic tablet called Champix, so on Monday I went along and asked for the same tablet.

So far so good, I’ve cut down a lot, I now have one or two a day. My final quit day is the 28th Feb, so I will be starting March as a non smoker.

I’ve decided to quit for various reasons, all the obvious ones really, I don’t want to die young, I don’t want old skin and yellow teeth, I don’t want my children to smoke, and I resent paying over £6 for a packet of fags. I’m almost 30, I’ve got to start looking after my skin, or I’ll start looking a LOT older than I am (and while that was great when I was 16, its not so hot now)

So people. Bear with me while I’m snappy, moody and aggressive. And if I put any weight on, well, you won’t like me when I’m *that* angry.

wish me luck…..

    Good luck. I have up years and years ago (like 10 +). In the end it is as simple as forming a new habit of non-smoking and testing yourself in situations when you normally smoke.

    Great that you're having a quit day. Worked for me.

    Good luck! I stopped smoking before I got pregnant with my eldest. I did it gradually without any patches, tablets, etc just willpower. It was hard and there were times when I was drinking and I'd have a sneaky one but I've completed stopped now. Good luck, it's worth it in the end!
