first time poster. 3rd time quitter. lol
yes this is my 3rd time trying to quit this year. this is the furthest ive made it(day 4) without cheating or relapsing. ive not had i puff in 4 days and i dont want another. tho im posting for the first time, i found this site by googling nicotine patches. and at first i was discouraged by the amount of topics that claimed they didnt work. thats bs. before i decided to quit i had realized what made me smoke. and that was for the nicotine. i hated the smoking and the second hand but it hade me feel better so i smoked. 15 years later and i found something that does the same without the harmful side effects.and the patches are now giving me exactly what i craved without inhaling a thing. its like a miracle or something. i realize it might not be suitble for everyone, they work just dandy and better than cigs for me. i can concentrate, relax and have 300% more energy and stamina than before. tho its only day 4 and from reading others testimonials that it doesnt work is bs to me. i plan on continuing with the 8 week program to ween myself from the nicotine effect but if i relapse, i will for now on relaps to the patch rather than the cigs. i get more effect for less of the risks. cant beat that. plus the night dreams are damn wicked. ive not desired or even wanted to smoke the shitty tars and contamination of tobacco when i can get the same effect from NRT. in the long run im hoping to ween myself from nicotine entirely but for now ill settle with the safer form of the stimulant than smoking it. so grats to all quittting and myself is on day 4, no regrets, best thing i ever did. more pleasure with less toxins. holy crap how can life get beter.
