Hey all, After smoking a packet a day for around 11 years i've given up smoking again, hopefully for the last time... again! I had my last cigarette around 6.15pm last night, just before I hopped on the bike to head home. I had 2 of the 4mg Nicorette chewys last night. On my second one today as I type this. With all other attempts that I've made this year I've tried to quit in the morning by not smoking and having a chewy as soon as I wake up. This was hard to time because I'd rarely be left with that one smoke before I'd go to bed. And when I was left with none it never worked; the chewy wouldn't hold off the craving enough so I'd just go to the milk bar and pick up another packet first thing in the morning. Yesterday when I had a few left during the day I thought I'd ration them out and try to stretch it till the end of the day. Didn't work. After getting home from work, ate a huge big dinner, had an ice cream to try and get rid of the taste of the last cigarette I had. Went to my room and started playing Grand Theft Auto and had one of the chewys. It held off the carvings time. It could be the chewys get more potent with age. I think this packet is over a year old by now, or it could be that running over and shooting people in the game helped too This morning was easier, I figured I've made too good a start to F it up now so that's keeping me motivated to not buy a packet. The only problem is that I have this almost uncontrollable urge to bang my head against the desk and there are too many people in the office right now so I cant see if that makes me feel any better. As far as New Years resolutions go, I've left this one a bit late, but if I manage to stay off them I'll be saving approximately $1330 till the new year. Plus a better set of lungs too! Something to think about if you've been putting it off aswell. Cheers!
