I hope this helps someone - my good deed for the day...
This quitting lark is not easy, in fact at times it is bloody difficult but as each week passes you'll find that boy it is worth it and I'm sure the veterans of the site will support me with that comment.
I think the biggest part of quitting is educating oneself about smoking, nicotine addition and planning. Most of you heard of the PPPPPP acronym (if not google it). I, like many others have learned that the hard way. If I had planned how to deal with my possible summer holiday triggers then I would not be almost back to the start again
I have learnt so much from this site about nictoine addiction, things no doctor or no smoking nurse will ever be able to pass on. Why? Because this forum is all about real life quitters, those that have been there, done that and got the t-shirt.
So...use this forum and post, support others and give advice from your own quit experience (when you can), celebrate milestones, shout for help when needed. But most importantly of all read, read, read - it does help.
I wanted to attach a post about dopamine by a forum member (shellywinters) which I found so helpful, it explains about how taking certain vitamins can help with your quit...but not sure how to do it so you will just have to search for the thread (sorry)
I hope I have not rambled on too much and I hope this has helped, supported someone with their quit. If not...oh well...I tried.
One crave at a time, one day at a time and you will get there.
Have a nice day
