I am stopping smoking again.
I started planning this over a week ago. My cheap tobacco from Belgium, Romania and France was due to run out. I was not prepared to buy in the UK, the price is ludicrous.
As I get older the effect of smoking is getting stronger and stronger, I cannot bare it any longer, the toxicity.
I went to the doctor and asked for help. She prescribed some Nicotine Patches. I could not bare the thought of going cold turkey again, I have not tried the patches before.
The tobacco ran out on Sunday night.
My first day of no smoking for many years.
The patch itches.
My head is fuzzy.
I cannot concentrate.
I am very irritable.
Everything stressing me out.
No coffee as it will really make me want to smoke, so I am sleepy as well.
No alcohol in the evening, that would do for me.
I made the day without smoking, it was horrible though.
Tuesday, my second day has been a bit easier.
I still get the pre-action image in my head, to reach out and roll a cigarette …… then the flush of disappointment.
One day at a time.
I can feel the difference in my lungs already.
Long way to go.
