I just smoked my last cigarette...again
I'm really amazed at how disgusting they really are. How did I ever start?

Going pretty well, struggling with depression which always kicks in a couple of weeks after I give up and drives me back to smoking. Not this time! I know it won't help, I need to keep my self active and engaged. A nice hot bath would be good. Might have to go for a chcolate run. But no cigs! I don't even crave them as long as I wear my patches. It's just a crutch...that could kill me.

This is so hard but signing in and seeing that made it worth it. I've only had one from scraps of tobacco I scrounged up one night when it was was 2.30 and I couldn't sleep. I need to be careful to get enough sleep or my mental health really deteriorates. Using patches and gum. This time is it, I can feel it, but it doesn't make the emotions any easier to deal with when you just want that cigarette.
Guess I'm one who's badly addicted, my dad used to smoke and would just give up sporadically when he needed to, so he doesn't really understand.
But I went to the GP and the practice nurse changed my smoking status on my health record and gave me a script for more patches and gum.
Time for bed! Another smoke free day tomorrow.

I also researched vitamins to take when you quit but I think I might have gone a bit overboard on buying up supplements, oh well I'll end up saving money in the long run and my health is priceless.
The whyquit website with Joel spitzer has been really helpful and made me realise this is a serious drug addiction and I'm no different to anyone else dealing with a drug addiction. Being kind to myself and NOPE.
