I've taken a tiny step today. Today makes 24 hours without a real cigarette.
Now don't get too excited...I've switched to e-cigarettes. Still nicotine but none of the other nasty stuff that goes with real ones. There's no smoke, no odor, no trash. I don't have to go outside to smoke.
Are they as satisfying as a real one? Not quite, but they do the job. I haven't killed anyone yet!! I'm hoping that the fact they aren't quite as good will eventually wean me off all together.
I am definitely saving money! My average cost for real cigarettes was about $120 per month. With the e-cigarettes, at most my expense will be $40 per month. It's my goal to only need one refill pack per month which will reduce it to $20.
Keep your fingers crossed, everybody! I'm on my way...one tiny step at a time!
