The patch is so helpful. For me it makes quitting relatively painless. Until the patch comes off. That is my hurdle. I am going to stay on it longer this time.
Thanks for the encouragement - it is better - but I feel like my life really sucks right now
Haaa.. good to see your name again . Hope yoyr quit is going well
It was good till the 3 week mark, then i slipped a bit but im back to not smoking. I just keep quitting.
On a positive note i went to my dentist today, it had been a year and did a cleaning, teeth look good, no cavities he said, keep up the good work.. He used to be a smoker himself. the cleaning definitely went easier than other times when i smoked heavily. Smoking does a lot of damage to teeth and gums.
Thanks for messaging me
Hope you make it this time Overdoz -youve
come so close to a year
cigarette free for most of the year is a good accomplishment .
Doing very well at 14 days free..... sleeping issues is all for me but they are terrible at times..
I’m on day 8 of the patch. I take it off before bed or I get really weird dreams. Other than that, no problems with it.
Way to go, overdoz! I am rooting for you for the past year. You are amazing. I am so impressed by how persevering you are. Even if you spend your lifetime keeping quitting - you are still better off for all those days you spend smokefree. But chances are, you will one day never want to subject yourself to any more withdrawal and staying off cigarettes will have become so easy that you will quit for good.
Thanks, i slip on a lot of things i try to change that i have been used to doing for a while. I am consciously when i have a craving go for walks and keep busy and try to change the behavior.
I am recommitting to everything i am trying to change, we have to keep looking ahead.
