I watched it, Aversion Therapy I think, he's very animated, waves his arms around a lot. The message is good

Congratulations on getting through your craves, I spoke to a quit smoking therapist today, I ran out of 21mg patches so I put a 14 mg on till I went down the chemist, but strangely enough  I haven't needed the 21 mg, go figure? The quit smoking therapist wants me to stay on the 14 mg and use a lozenge if I get a craving...so far no cravings? Well I have kept fairly busy today. The therapist also said what I went through was just a slip up not a relapse.

Kind regards

Anthony

I am still not sleeping well, thanks for asking, I was going to have an afternoon nap but time got away from me again and instead I went for a 8K walk. Sounds like you have everything under control That confidence that quitting brings is unreal, Hope springs eternal.

Yes everything is fine, bought new joggers yesterday and had orthotics fitted today  and straight away went for  a 8K walk, love my new shoes. so much more comfortable than the last pair. Lets hope for a no cloud night when viewing the milky way it is awesome, I get lost in them they are magnificent.

Two days, 16 hours, 23 minutes and 53 seconds. 83 cigarettes not smoked, saving $103.74. Life saved: 6 hours, 55 minutes.

Good for you guys for holding strong! I just found out I've been using the lozenges too long so I'm trying to use mint Lifesavers to ease my pain. You guys are really doing this thing, we are doing this thing, together! How awesome is it that all these people that don't know each other can get together and cheer each other on? We are beating this addiction, sometimes by the skin of our teeth, but we are doing this. Everybody stay strong. This is a very big deal.

Oh...so what makes it too long? Is there something on the package that says? I still have some though haven’t used any for quite some time. I still carry them with me though “just in case”. They are one of those things that I’ve told myself I would do first if I were really thinking I would cave in. So I guess like a security blanket. I had some 4 mg ones I cut in half and think that is what is in there. Some day I’ll take them out of my bag. 
How you doing without? Lifesavers are good cause you can hold them between your teeth and kind of suck air in through them. And! If you get in front of a mirror in the dark and bite the spearmint ones with your mouth open they make sparks! Yup. Fun stuff Tiny.

Anytime Anthony!
I will never forget you responding to an of mine back in March I think. You said “You’re not alone”. Made a huge difference in that moment for me and still does. 
So...use that anytime, that wait for 3 replies deal we all have. 
Beautiful full moon here tonight.
