I made it onto the day 4-7 board!

Day 4 and im really pleased with myself. To everyone still on days 1-3 keep going!

The patch still itches but its seriously helping me i think. Im taking it off at about 11pm each night.

Im getting used to being a non smoker now and the "ill just have a fag" thoughts are getting less often - alot quicker than i thought too!

  • i also found it pretty easy to stop smoking.

    full strength patches for 4 weeks

    medium patches for 2 weeks then i went it alone.

    for me the difference between the medium patch and not using anything was minor very slight.

    a smoker of 25 a day for 20 years.

    smoke free since 8 march.

    I do like a drink on a Friday night but what i do say is if i was to smoke one it wont make me feel better just the opposite then i will crave for another even more.

    good luck


    plenty of exercise helps

  • Thanks everyone. My carbon monoxide levels are now that of a non smoker - which means my health is getting better! How cool is that?

    The nrt is awesome, id never try cold turkey after this. To anyone thinking of quitting - go talk to you ceaseation clinic - they help alot!

  • Well Done MarcJacob x x x

    Excellent advice too, those cessation guys are great! even if you choose cold turkey! any method (different strokes for different folks!) they are there for you x x

  • Hi Marcjacob

    Just brilliant! Into your second week? (my maths is quite poor after 9pm - absolutely brilliant before but after 9.....) The smoking cessation lady at my clinic is an absolute angel - well worth the visit and as it's done on an open basis I've got to meet some new people too and swop stories - mutual support is so important.

    Well done and keep us posted
