I figure one post a week about how I'm doing is enough. The last time I gave up was around four years ago after dipping in and out of smoking for around six years. Then, as now, I used Nicotine Lozenges to help with the cravings. I'm trying to change my routine a bit to deal with the ciggy moments. Of which there are many.
So far though it's not been too bad. The first two days I was on the Isle of Wight visiting family and so wasn't in my normal environment, although I was with a smoker for most of that time. The first few hours at work today were hard though. My usual routine goes like this.
Wake up: ciggy out of bedroom window
Get up make a cup of tea: ciggy out of back door
Go to bus stop: ciggy waiting for bus
Get to work have cup of tea: ciggy on smoking roof
Work until 10am: have ciggy
Finish tea break: have ciggy
Today none of the ciggies happened. My routine stayed pretty much the same I just didn't smoke. I've had seven 2mg lozenges which compared to my usual nicotine intake is hardly anything and although I came home and cleaned like a nutter on speed I seem to be doing alright so far. No one is dead yet at any rate.
