Finally got round to sticking a nicotine patch on and getting myself some nicotine gum.
I have attempted this in the past but always had the odd cigrette which led me back to smoking again.
This time I have decided to just stick to the patchs and the gum and not have any cigrette at all.
I figure if I can break the habit of wanting a cigrette in the morning or after having something to eat then it would be a good start.
After I have broken the actual habit I can reduce the amount of nicotine content by lowering the nicotine amount on the patches I buy.
Weight has remained steady over the last month. I have lost 2.5 stone so far in the last 6 months.
I have still got to lose about the same amount of weight again to reach my goal.
Since quitting smoking I have noticed a marked improvement when going on my treadmill.
I can now go at speeds I have never been able to go at before and also I am not out of breath when I finish my treadmill session which ultimately means I could remain on the treadmill for longer if time was not a consideration.
Managed to secure myself some nice client work.
I cannot say much about this particular client work as I am under an NDA however it has to do with creating a medical software web application.
