day 5 with the nrt patches

Thanks to everyone who replied to my comments, I'm not used to forums but am really pleased I joined up. Today is the 5th day of nrt with patches, up to now things haven't really changed, the cravings are practically non exsistant and i feel like i've more energy. I'm drinking 1.5ltrs of water throughout the day at work and started eatin' cornflakes for lunch instead of my usual three or four ciggies!!! hope you are all coping and i'm lookin' forward to us all kicking this filthy habit for good.!!!!

Welcome to the forum and well done on the decision to quit possibly one of the most important you will ever make and you will be losing nothing but you will regain control of your life and that has to be good

Read the posts on here you will find a lot of tips and advice and in the signatures of a lot you will find links to other sites just click on them Here are 2 I find very good to start you off and Read, read and then read some more as the more you read and learn about why you smoked and about your addiction the easier your quit will be

This link is good for the psychological part of quitting
