So here I am, 40-something. I started smoking cigarettes around 14 or 15 years of age. I have few health issues other than getting the annual bronchitis attack, this year I'm on my second of the year, big poo on that. So I've decided that today will be my last day as a smoker. Tomorrow morning when I wake up, I'm going to start my life as a non-smoker! No substituting smokeless cigarettes in place of the real thing, no patches, no nicotine gum in fact no nicotine anything.
I hope to update you all with my progress or lack there-of, maybe someone will read this and decide to take the leap and attempt to live their life smoke free as well.
I have quit once before, a few years ago I quit again without any aid or nicotine substitute, I managed to go a whopping 3 days, on the 4th day I broke down. I did notice that after the third day craving weren't particularly bad, not really sure why I decided to smoke on day 4. This time, no smoking ever again.
I plan to watch my food intake as well, I don't want to start eating tons replacing one bad habit with another. I'm over weight now so I am planning on having some sort of exercise regime in place by week 2, sooner if I feel I'm able. I'm currently tipping the scales at around 260 lbs, which for my height 6'2" isn't that bad.
