One step at a time... Will I ever be truly quit?   General Chit-Chat

Well everyone, I am down to 5-6 lozenges a day as opposed to 11-12. I am not clean of nicotine, but I can say that I have less anxiety. I do not know truly if I will ever be rid of nicotine 100%. I don't know if I ever want to be, sadly. I admire everyone here who fought the good fight and never looked back... But I am coming to accept that I like the lozenges and if I can stay at 5-6 a day for now, that already feels like a small win for me. Honest feedback is appreciated.

Hi Jerthie! I think cutting back and having less anxiety is definitely a win!  My only other feedback is that for me, it helps to remind myself I'm not smoking today. If I start thinking "I'll never smoke again," then I feel like I'm missing out. In other words, I give life to that damn addiction. But not smoking today? I can do that without overthinking, and the more days pass, the easier it gets.

Thanks Martha! I feel really good that I was and am able to cut down now too. It's a win... Small win but better than I was doing before!
