I’m 48 hours into quitting smoking – nicotine lozenges, normal chewing gum and some fake plastic fag thing that I’m not overly impressed with. Oh and an occassional (non-inhaling) puff on a cigar to get me past the post-coffee pang with some sort of real tabacco flavour. But despite all the various aids it really does seem to come down to will power.
And it’s starting to get to proper cold turkey time now – aching desire for one of the bloody things. I’m told the second 48 hours is harder. I really hope not.
Anyway we are supposed to be a community of sorts here so if you’ve had any experience of trying to kick the habit, have any useful tips then feel free to use the comments box.
I may swear at you though.
