Day 2 - Doing OK

Getting through last night was harder than getting through the day, I wanted to go to bed about 7.30pm!!!

Followed the same routine this morning - put on the patch as soon as I woke up and only had the gum after the school run. Feeling pretty good today, very chuffed that I managed to get through day 1 without too much difficulty.

I really think the patches and gum are helping me a lot.

Good luck everyone xx

Thanks Andy... the support within this forum is brilliant, it's so nice to know that there are other people out there who know how difficult this can be.

Thanks Hannah - I opted out of using the inhalator because I was worried it would make me really miss the whole smoking thing - how are you finding it? As I found last night the hardest (when I have that lovely glass of wine!! which I'm just not ready to give up yet!!) I wonder if an inhalator might help reduce the boredom in the evenings.

hi, i think its great, it defo works when your having wine or a drink, like im at work now and really wanting to go outside for a cig with me mates but i do but take my inhalator with me. its working so far ill just see how its goes .

i suppose its better to try the inhalator than thinking oh i could have a fag (it works for me)

good luck xx

Sugar Free Lollipops help!

Hi all,

If you're stuck with putting something in your mouth/hands, someone suggested carrying a drink straw in half and carrying that and puffing on it when needed.

I like the chupa chups sugar free lollipops, but then again if it's food I'll eat it!! :D

Chupa chups are great, as I discovered last night! Have now eaten both the kids and will embark on a marathon chupa-chup shop at lunchtime:D

Chubba chops seem to be most popular! I spent most of my quit smoking money on cadburys easter eggs last year, that helped my urges though made my belly bigger :o
