I'm sorry I missed posting this yesterday but I'm still so happy for you. You're doing wonderfully and inspiring others too! Congratulations also on being in those situations where others smoke and resisting temptation. You have a lot to be proud of! We're all proud of you too! I hope you did something special to celebrate not only this wonderful achievement but also to celebrate that terrific accomplishment. You deserve it. You really are doing great and it's wonderful to see you so active on the forum. Again, big congratulations xvaper! tada

Thank you so much for remembering . It was a challenge I had to face and it went well overall. I’m still taking it a day at a time, I’m not yet where I want to be mentally, in the sense that I will have zero interest, but I will get there with persistence. I advise to everyone to just make a decision and stick to it. No plan B, not reducing amounts, Just do it. You have to be the responsible adult of yourself, which is not easy, but it’s the only way.

Denim, you have inspired and cheered me on through this journey and it means so much, so thank you again. my birthday is in the 29 of May so I will celebrate the two together!!

Hey xvaper, 

I have no doubt that you will get there. relaxed

Thank you again for encouraging words to others too. 

You're very welcome. I'm so happy to celebrate these milestones with you. Thank you for your kind words also. I think it's wonderful that you'll be able to celebrate both terrific occasions together next month! That's great! I hope you have something extra special planned. You deserve it and I can't wait to celebrate those special occasions here with you too. 

I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend. 

Have a great day. relaxed

xvaper....

I admire your persistence and willpower.  I am using 6-7 lozenges a day once again, after 9 weeks of being lozenge free.  I just have a lot of changes going on in my life, and sucking on the lozenges is my way of coping.  My bipolar disorder has been active, and if I don't suck on lozenges I find that I snack and gain weight, and that stresses me out.

I have talked about my situation ad nauseum.  I want to look forward to quitting the lozenges again, but this time, like you did... For good.  Cold turkey.  No cutting down... Just nip it in the bud.  If I managed 9 weeks, I should be able to do the real quit.  Oh, the pain of relapse... Which is why sometimes I think I should just have a  supply of the lozenges and use them only in desperate situations.

I am worried about weight gain and I am worried about my mental health amidst the changes both in my professional life and my personal life.  If either one of these gets out of hand, I am afraid I will be headed towards difficulty.  But God provides!

I pray the rosary almost daily.  I also pray to various saints for help with my mental condition, and my work and my personal life.  I just may find a new saint to pray to about quitting the lozenges!  It gives me hope to think I can do it!  It gives me great hope and comfort to hop on this forum and read both words of encouragement and similar struggles others are going through!

If we encourage one another it gives us the drive to quit or at least cut down or to try again!  I, for one, am feeling once again hopeful!  I start my new job tomorrow.  I am excited!  I will keep you all posted on my plan of resolve to quit!  I want to ask for advice, but know that it all just starts with... Me and me changing the way I think.  Good night all.
