Ok, so i've just put out my last ciggy and am now a non-smoker. I know it's the best thing i'll ever do, but it will also be the hardest and so any words of wisdom much appreciated.
Have tried patches etc in the past, but they're not for me as it just seems as if i'm replacing one dependency with another. Plus it's the mental addiction that's more of a problem for me rather than the physical - so going cold turkey.
What would really help is postive experiences from ex-smokers - how soon did you notice and improvement in your running and how much of an improvement?
And if you're not an ex-smoker then post a joke - i've found from previous attempts that if i can divert myself for 2-3 mins the craving passes - so all diversions welcome.
