Hiya everyone, hope you're all well. Mornings are still being bad to me and I woke up a couple of hours ago and did all of my morning things to help me get going. The past two days I've cut my patch in half but have found that I'm crankier and can't get anything done, dunno if it was a combination of half a patch and the flu or what. Anyways today I've slapped on a whole patch and told myself that it's only day 11 and that I don't want to fail in my quit just because I tried to come off the patches too early. That really got me thinking though.. I've had Easyway for a couple of years now and in the past it has spurred me on to quit cold turkey. I've started reading it again this morning to strengthen my quit but all it's doing is making me feel lousy cos I'm using patches and according to him it's so easy to go cold turkey and I should not be using any type of NRT. I want to be free from nicotine but I also want to build up my confidence till I believe that I can live as a non-smoker before I come off the patches but at the same time I don't want to be hooked on the patches and end up giving away my hard earned cash to the NRT companies instead of the tobacco ones. Maybe I should stop thinking about it and go take the dog for a walk or something. That's the only morning thing I haven't done yet and no doubt it'd do me the power of good. Sorry for me ranting, didn't have internet most of yesterday and my fingers have been building up to it hope you're all having a good day and smelling and tasting lots of nice things (oh yeah and I'm overeating.. :S).
