    Well done :-) just take it one hour at a time

    My mum was a heavy ( and I mean heavy smoker) for over 40 years she stopped smoking in February this year I never ever believed she would ever quit smoking or even attempt to try.

    Your doing a great thing but it won't be easy so seeking help from professionals may help

    You're nearly there, your first day smoke free. I smoked for 13 years and gave up cold turkey 14 years ago. It can be done and it was incredibly liberating.

    One of the strategies I used was if I wanted a smoke I would just try and get through the day, hour etc at a time. If I was out at the pub I would think, I'm just not going to smoke tonight. If I still want a smoke tomorrow then I will have one and it will be without guilt but I am just not going to have one tonight. The other key strategy I took was to take responsibility for my smoking. Although it's an addiction I am the only person who puts the smoke in my mouth and lights it. If I don't want to smoke then I need to not put a smoke to my mouth. If I do, then I obviously want to smoke, and I didn't. No one else puts the smoke in my mouth.

    If it helps, think about what you're doing to your baby every time you have a smoke. It restricts the amount of oxygen your baby is getting, kind of like partially suffocating your baby. I know you don't want to do that.

    I agree with the liberating comment - where and when I can have a ciggie no longer dictates where I go/when and I'm not constantly planning an 'escape' route for a smoke

    No judgement... supporting you in spirit! You have done well cutting down and consciously taking steps to a better choice! Try diffusing therapeutic grade Essential oils. Example - 1 drop peppermint / 2 drops clove / 1 drop cinnamon
