Failed.....kind of

First of all, no I havent smoked. But Ive had a very stressfull day at work today and cravings have just been killing me today, Im afraid I sucummed and fell back to NRT so I have failed going cold turkey. I bought some NiQuitin Minis. Soon as I put one in my mouth I felt so much better, which is really anoying, meaning that Im still addicated to nicotine. I have no intention of smoking again but upset with myself that I had to go back to NRT. Im hoping I can just put them somewhere out the way now and not use them again as Im so desperate to get completly off nicotine as well as cigs. :(

  • Hi Dave

    You had me worried for a minute there!!

    You haven't failed at all, what you have done is what we all advise anyone thinking about smoking to do - what ever it takes not to have a ciggy!!

    So, I congratulate you on not smoking and wish you luck on your continuing quit journey!!

    Keep up the good work!! :D

  • Yo havent failed silly ... you've done the right thing! Your body isnt ready to let go 110% of the nicotine yet .. as I am finding with mine today .... I havent gone or the patches yet ... butif this dark cloud hanging over my head drops further ... then I will ... LOL :)

    Well done !

  • You have not failed at all.

    At 2 months in I had a works lunch/drinks, and half way through the afternoon I just felt I needed something (I quit cold turkey) I went off and got some NRT, used 3 that day/night, and have not used them again, though I have them in my bag just in case.

    Do I think I 'failed'?

    I think I made a complete success of the night, I didn't smoke;)

    Edited the above lol ... stupid fingers go faster without a smoke in them, but they seem to go so fast they miss things out :o

    Hope you're feeling better today ! :D
