Post subject: Just quit smoking :)
So after 14 years of smoking I finally quit , it's only been 8 days but I feel better for it already .. I'm using a nicotine patch , don't think I could do it with just will power alone just yet , one thing that worrys me tho is that the next time I have a drink il cave and have a smoke . Anyone any tips ?? Anyone else recently quit ???

I've been quit smoking for 2 months now. Best thing I've decided to do. My husband still smokes but it doesn't bother me and he smokes outside which helps. I thought that when I'd next have a drink I'd want one and I'm not gonna lie I did want one. However I didn't have one because 1: I didn't have any cigarettes and 2: the friend I was with isn't a smoker. I'd try and hold off having a drink for a while until you're over your urges. Have a fizzy drink instead. I was on the patches for 2 and half weeks. The rest was will power. Good luck.. you can do it!

Well done for giving up. Its not easy!
I quit first time with patches and tbh I did start again. Ifound as soon as id stopped the patches I wanted to smoke again.
The second time I quit was with the allen carr book and quit on the 12/12/11 ...the real test was xmas day with the free flowing booze and family members smoking but I supprised myself and I did it
It takes real will power so id suggest only drink if you feel strong enough..maybe try a small glass at home during the week or something.
Once youve achived that one night out without touch a cig, , it'llbe so much easier the next time your out
