i am new to the forum so thought i would introduce myself
my name is alex and im 26 y/o, i had been smoking for 9/10 years of around 15 a day more or less. (More when drinking =) ).
I have been half heartedly thinking of quitting for the last year but decided to quit for good now and on day 34!!!
i am using patches for the first month using full strength 15mg and now on 10mg while using inhalator when i feel the need.
i have suffered with aggression and short temper like a angry infant for the first couple of weeks and thanks to my misses patcients have got through it fine.
i work in a stressful environment (currency trading) and colleagues smoke so think i'm doing ok.
I wanted to ask the people who are also going through it, am i cheating using patches and inhalator. When should i stop using them? (i have decreased the patches strength)
i still find it difficult to be honest and grab from my inhalator a lot when craving.
any recommendations for my scenario?
also i was told that i would cough a lot once i gave up but i haven't at all which is slightly worrying me as though i would be coughing up all the tar that i have pumped into my lungs over the years.
