Cloud, thank you! I’ve heard the 3rd year can be the magic number for craves to settle down, so I’m hoping to get there.
Jerthie, that’s great you had such a good consultation! The reasons our minds do what they do has always fascinated me. It sounds like this will be a wonderful journey for you. I really need to get into counseling, myself. I looked a couple months back and it seemed like no one is taking new clients. I need to try again. Life is hard and having someone help process it can make a huge difference.
I hope you have a nice weekend. I’ve made it through day 5!
Thank you Jenny. I hope you find a therapist that suits you. It really is helpful. Hopping on the forum is also very therapeutic! Day 5! Way to go. Keep on truckin'!
Hey young lady
life is full of suprises
soe good some bad
it took me until I turned 68 to realize
how important others are in my life
i hope you find that “special” person as I have
its worth the wait
we are there for you
Thank you Andrew! I hope he appears somewhere in this life. How are you doing? I was thinking of you. I haven't seen any posts from you lately. Hope you are staying well! We have breakfast out this morning at 9am. I am using still 6 lozenges a day down from 12. I do want to stay put here until I am ready to go down to 5 then 4 then 3, etc. Are you still using the pouches? I best let you go. Take care Andrew thanks for checking in!
Got through day 6! I actually didn’t even think of smoking until more than an hour after I woke up. Part of that was because I spent an hour trying to buy comic-con tickets for my daughter. They’re quite hard to get! I successfully got tickets for 2 of the 5 days, so she was very happy.
My car’s tire was low on air, so I had to go into a gas station to ask them to turn on the air machine. It was the station I usually buy cigarettes, so it was a little hard. Back home tonight and happy I made it.
Jenny, that is great. It sounds like you are just living life without worrying about having a smoke, and that will get easier the more you keep on doing what is in front of you at the moment without pausing for a cigarette. I am craving a lozenge right now but will just have another cup of coffee instead. I am still motivated to reduce my lozenge intake, but am not in a rush to do a full on quit. I hope we all have a lovely Sunday.
Jenny you are doing great and god will help you
Hi Jenny... Wondering how you are doing. How are you? I am doing pretty good at maintaining 5-6 lozenges a day, as opposed to 12-13 a day. I am beating cravings by connecting with others about my mental illness and my personal journey and struggle to beat nicotine addiction. Every day opens up something new for me, the more I plod along with reducing my intake. It is not a clean quit, but I feel good about where I am right now at this moment. God bless!
Andrew... I've been thinking about you. How are you? Are you still using the pouches? That is so amazing. I love how you are over the act of smoking! It had been more than 6 months for you now. Keep up the great work! I am still using the lozenges, however I am only using 5-6 a day as opposed to 12-13 a day. It helps me to connect with others about my mental illness and my personal journey and struggle to beat nicotine addiction. By helping others and sharing my insights, I am encouraged to do something new in my life, as opposed to staying as the same heavily addicted person I used to be. I am far away from a clean quit, but I feel pretty darn good for being where I am at this moment, and continue to pray to be home free eventually with God's help and in His timing. God bless!!
