been a busy, happy and smoke free moog today. spent the afternoon visiting two no smoking day events (to do with work really) I got loads of freebies; a savings tin, stress ball, pens, stickers etc and a really nice red brolly. I had by Co2 levels tested and they have gone from 10 to 2 which I was very pleased about.
I also managed to get a new prescription for my gum as Im not sure the patches work for me.
i got some advice that made me think regarding nrt and would be interested to see what others think??
after feeling very proud that I had used minimal amounts of gum today and ditched the patches but I was told that nrt is kind of vital in the first few weeks as the cravings can be strong and you dont want to be tempted into smoking again.
i just said that I feel that I am learning to control the cravings and I think unless you can do that with or without nrt you are likely to start again.
I also said that I dont want to give up smoking and then have to give up the patches (if I continued to have them) and I want to use the gum if I really need it. I defo had too much nrt in the first couple of days and still have a sore throat. I think the fact that I dont like chewing gum kind of helps me.
what are peoples opinions on nrt and any experiences you have had?
keep going everyone and see you for hot chocolate tomorrow!!
actually ive no access to a pc tomorrow during the day so will post when I get home.
Keep up the hard work everyone and lets look forward to a smoke free tomorrow xxxx
