Day One

This is how I plan to start my first day of non smoking. I invite you all to join me. I believe it will be a great way to start each and every day. I must thank my dear friend darkblueverbatin from myLot for this great suggestion.

Get up early in the morning and take three deep breaths. Really deep breathes. Suck in the air for 5 seconds while you imagine your breath is going down to your belly button, hold for five seconds and let it out for five seconds.

Then stop breathing for five seconds and repeat the cycle another 2 times.

If you get dizzy your body is not used to the intake of oxygen and smoking is affecting your breathing. I can almost guarantee you will get dizzy, just like a nicotine rush.

I've been 5 days using nicotine replacement therapy (patches and gum)it really helps in the first few weeks to use it, especially for me because my friends all smoke so I have to watch them. Find out if there's anywhere near you that you can get the carbon monoxide levels in your blood tested too as that is inspiring (it's just like a breathaliser that they use to test for alcohol you blow into). Your doctor should be able to help with that.
