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.
Congratulations on starting your journey. We are all here to support and cheer you on. Best of luck and check in often!
Thanks everyone, its tough. But so far no smoke. Do not worry I will be reaching out for major suppport. Thanks everyone. I work during day so I will check back in the evening.
This is Carolyn. Today ,9/22/2022, Is my first day to have had not cigararetts. I praying it stays that way forever. I am 67 and now need angiogram due to blockage in my left leg (Bad HDL). I started at age 14 and started and stopped many times.
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.
Thanks for your encouragement.
