    :) Welcome and well done on 10 days that's brilliant. Reading about the addiction of nicotine is a good way to help stay stopped, helps us to understand what we are going through. You will find the links at the bottom of Wayne's signature.

    Good luck

  • Hi Jacqueline,

    Welcome to the forum. I also quit cold turkey, and if asked I would recommend it as the best way - however whatever helps anyone quit, be it patches gum inhalor, is fine with me.

    Being over a week into your quit means you have got past some of the toughest bits already, and the nicotine has been out of your system for a few days. Well done, that's a great start. You have every reason to feel good about yourself. Keep strong and keep it going.
