Wow I made it. Prior to starting this quit I really didn't believe I was capable of not smoking, I have been making serious attempts since before 2010. I tried cold turkey usually lasted about half a day. Hypnotism ,lit up as I walked out the door. patches,gum and lozenges, I sometimes lasted nearly a day.Champix I managed 3 months with two or three slipups in between. When the big shakes started in Chch I eventually caved in again. Tried champix again and it seemed to have no positive affect apart from feeling stuffed up in the head. tried zyban and much the same as champix. Christmas 2013 I got pnieumonia ,went to hospital and was very sick. I did stop mostly for about three days.Then I managed to stick to 3 a day for a few days ,then bam ,full on again. July /August last year I started getting the same symptoms I had the prior Christmas and I just couldn't face the prospect of going back to hospital and struggling to breath again ,that was a scary time .I decided on the Saturday night ,this is it ive had enough,no more smokes.I wasn't sure how I was going to do it but I had my old ecig still in the cupboard from a previous attempt so sunday morning I got it out and somehow that's been enough.Eventually after doing lots of research, I got onto a US website and bought a much betther ecig and good quality ejuice to go in the ecig. A lot of what you buy in NZ is not very good especially the liquid that goes in the ecigs.
I decided that as I smoked for 40 years I should take my time with this quit business. So I havnt really thought about quiting the ecig yet .Now that ive got a year up off the dreaded unowots ,I might start looking at the ecig too in the near future.

Still NOPE. Coping with life a lot better lately and feeling more positive.
Im pleased and surprised that even when the going has been tuff ,picking up a unowot hasn't been an option.I guess its true that it does get easier.
Occasionally when I see someone smoking I think for a second ,one of those would be nice ,but its just a thought that I have control over.
Hope every ones going good.I don't blog so much now ,though I still come on for a nosy every other day.Havnt seen much of axl for a while hope your doing well mate. .Not long till our first year off unowots eh.Good to see a few familiar faces and new ones on here too
