It's coming to the end of my 15th day and so far touch wood I haven't been tempted to smoke. I also haven't yet had all the horrible side effects I
got the last two times I quit.
I am slightly cheating though because I'm on 'step two' patches and have a nicotine inhaler. So far I've had two days where I was busy and forgot
to put on a patch entirely. I also go for days without using the puffer and as a result I'm only on my third capsule in total.
It hasn't been all good though.
On day one, by the time I managed to get my perscription from the chemist I was already 14 hrs into it. As I pulled over to park outside the chemist a
woman nipped in and straddled the two car space. The red mist came down and I just lost it with her. Her ignorance just pushed all my buttons. I was
so loud they heard it in the chemist. Needless to say she abandoned her trip to the Post Office next door and drove off presumably to come back at a
safer time. Prior to that I hadn't raised my voice in Anger in at least six months.
I also had another two days later. My landlords contractor was doing doing the guttering and soffits and they tangled my tv aerial cable, pulling it
loose so I lost all non satellite TV. Which for me means half my channels and about 5 of my favourites. I complained and so a supervisor came round
who wound me up so much I demanded he get off my property immediately and was so vocal and forceful that my landlord came to see me an hour later. 4
promies later despite promises they have still not repaired it.
Since then things have settled somewhat, but I've broken skin several times on my knuckles from hitting the wall. I've just got a punch bag so
hopefully that will help.
The hardest part for me is the last ciggy of the day, I'm really missing them.

hi there Thing
sorry about the delay I only just noticed there were additional posts today. Depression has been a major part of my life and relationship with ciggies
too, so I can sympathise.
I hope you're still off the smokes, either way please come back to the thread and let me know how you're getting on.
