It has been a while since I posted for advice but I haven't had a cig now in 6 weeks.
Cheers for everyones helpful advice. The best advice has been just to recognise that I had a problen -that I was dependant rather than just not thinking about it. Every time I had a cig I viewed it in a different way. I went through the worst of it in the first few weeks - bad headaches and tiredness etc. Actually I dreamt about having a cig last night, my old tutor from college offered me it and I felt I had to smoke it out of politeness but it tasted aweful. Gonna keep tryin.
The best thing to do is to find healthy snack foods and to keep them handy whenever you get the urge to smoke. The emphasis is on healthy foods. Non smokers are known to put on lots of weight after quitting. Smoking keeps your metabolism up, which makes you feel less hungry. If you're able to work out I recommend you do so - this will keep your metabolism up and will improve your mood.
