Firstly - i love smoking. I enjoy nothing more than a pint with a cigarette on a weekend, or that feeling of drawing in that sweet smoke after a meal.
Last few months, i've wanted to quit though.. My son is coming upto a year old.. I'm 26 now (been smoking since i was 19), so really is the best time to quit and avoid any long term affects.
The ONLY reason i want to quit, is the risk of lung cancer and heart disease.. And the thought of clocking out prematurely, missing certain moments with my son.
I had my last cigarette yesterday afternoon.. I've now for my bottle of volvic on my desk, packs of Wrigleys extras and very much in the mood to punch something.
This is the first time i've quit, not using patches or any quit smoking aids.. Although i really want a cig, i honestly thought i'd be craving worse than this.. Especially as i'm a 30 a day smoker. It's hard, don't get me wrong.. Just thought i'd be clubbing baby seals and ripping my hair out by this point.
Anyone else have that?
