Hi Anthony,

I sent you a link in a conversation.  See if that is the one you are looking for.

Sorry cindi but I don’t have your link.  No worry.  I don’t need to find it.  This website is difficult for me to master.  I have heard similar sentiments from other members.  But we continue to soldier on.  Thank you.

Sorry I couldn't help more.  It was actually from September 8 so I don't know if it was the right one.  I also have challenges navigating the site so don't feel bad.

Hi Carolyn

You're doing the right thing.  It's not easy, we've all been smoking for the majority of our adult lives.  For me it was so long that I had never been an adult nonsmoker until i quit when I was 55. 

It was tough at first.  I decided to use the 21mg patch, the strongest one, until I broke the habitual side of smoking. After that i would taper down to break the nicotine addiction aspect.  On the morning of the first day of the 5th week, I had to be at work earlier than usual. In the rush of things i forgot to put the patch and panic set in.  I thought about returning to get the patch but rush hour traffic didn't make this a reasonable option. So I white knuckled it that day and survived, and most importantly learned that I could live without the patch.  Since then I have learned to live without nicotine.  I am now ten years nicotine free.

I did it. You can too. Stick with the group, use the information here, it will help you.
