I am going to quit smoking, honest!
I have been smoking for 40 some years and smoke 40 a day. Not a reason to celebrate. Recently a friend was diagnosed with lung cancer and that has helped to focus my mind.
So, on Saturday (well, midnight Friday) I will quit smoking.
In the past I have tried, several times. However, this time it feels different. For one thing I am telling people. I have set up a savings spreadsheet to see how much I was wasting. I have an electronic cigarette to give me no excuse to buy another packet. (I don’t mind the nicotine so much as the gases and tar). I have nicotine suppressant drugs that should help wean me off all nicotine. It is a 12 week course of the drug so I hope to see my use of the e-cig decrease over time after I quit smoking.
What am I looking forward to when I quit smoking? Not coughing in the morning, my first thought when I get up not being where are my fags but what shall I have for breakfast, being able to fill my lungs, deeply, when I breath in. That kind of thing.
I will keep this blog up dated with my progress when I quit smoking.
Oh, yes, I think I will succeed, if nothing else I really, I mean really, do not want to have to write the “Quit Smoking? I Failed” blog………….
