  • Of course you are a non smoker... obviously they are jealous of you because if they wasn't they would be praising you on such a massive achievement !!

    Your friends a chatting rubbish! They clearly know nothing lol .... (sorry, but its true!)

    Smoking is alot more that Nicotine! But it is the Nicotine which majorly grips us! You keep on doing what you do! You're probably right ... Jealousy is what it sounds like to me!

    Whlst you may be getting nicotine through a patch, you are no longer at risk of death through the poisons in cigarettes .. they are!

    Remind them of that!

    whats is this list????? please don,t tell me the contents of what makes aq ciggeratte!!! if so, do we inhale all of those chemicals??? god! might as well stand in a burning building for 5 mins, 20 times a day!!!. that has shocked me!!. i thought it was just nicotine, tar, paper and tabaccoo and flavering!!! so what ingrediants or chemicals are there in nicotione patches and inhalers? xx thanks for this by the way xxx:eek:

  • told my friends today that its my 19th day of no smoking. they said that i,m not really a non smoker as i,m on nicotine products.... they said that im still a smoker, they said go cold turkey then i,m a non smoker....... didn,t fell good to hear this......... but hey... they still smoke and i don,t and there probley jealous that im succeding!!!!! up your bum. :D x

    I would totally ignore your 'friends'. They are talking out of their bums as you said. Have you had a cigarette? No, then you are not a smoker. What you are doing is using every available means possible to make sure a cigarette does not pass your lips again. Whether that is CT, patches, gum, lozenges, microtabs, Champix, whatever. It does not matter so long as you succeed.

    I am using Lozenges. Yes, I would like to have gone Ct but felt I could not. If someone said that to me, well, lets just say that would have felt the sharp edge of my tongue.

    I am on day 19, on lozenges to help me cope & I am bloody proud as I am sure you are as well.

    You keep your head held up high, almost 3 weekss & STUFF YOUR FRIENDS lol

    xx

  • Your friends, and I use that term quite loosely, are presumably referring to that fact that smoking is about addiction and by using NRT you are still supplying your body with nicotine. However, you are not smoking and ultimately you will wean yourself off that nicotine. They will then look very silly.

    If I had known what I know now about quitting and nicotine addiction then I would not have used NRT, however I didn't and I used lozenges. While I did I took the time to educate myself so that when I ditched NRT I knew what was going to happen and I knew that I was getting rid of nicotine for good. I have not been a smoker since July 2008 and I have been nicotine free since September 2008.

    Your friends should be supportive of your success even if they feel that you would be better off without NRT.

  • well said!!!. im on nicotine patches and nicotine inhalour. ive given up before twice on cold turkey and succeded for about 6 months to a year... but this time i couldn,t go ct. maybe because i,m stressed and didn,t want to give up. i loved smoking and would start again tommrow!! but i can,t im pregnant so its a no no. xx;)

  • totally agree with posters above...they havent taken any steps in quitting so you should be proud of yourself. you will get off the nic and they will still be puffing all those chemicals into their bodies and you have wont!! dont let anyone take your 19 days accomplishment away!! keep moving foward!! im on day 19 as well...so congrats to us:D

  • i loved smoking and would start again tommrow!! but i can,t im pregnant so its a no no. xx;)

    Well done, loopy, I tried to quit, too, when I was pregnant but didn't last long.... pretty sad but little one turned out healthy and perfect, luckily, still have some regrets though..... having a newborn and being a smoker definitely doesn't go well together.

    Regarding above post, I just wanted to suggest for you to re-think the statement, not only is it based on false thinking but it also opens this window of possibly smoking in the future. Giving up smoking because of pregnancy is great, amazing really as we smoke more during stress, and lets face it, being pregnant is stressful..... but take this time to dispel some of the false beliefs you have about smoking.

    You smoked to get your fix, not because you loved it. Your body became immune to the nasty smell and taste and you learned to think you loved it... just like a heroine addict learned to think it's great to plunge a needle in his arm..... he too would insist he 'loved it'. If you continue to say you loved it, chances are, you'll return to smoking, and I'm sure in time you'll have regrets.... so take this as an opportunity to be done for good! Lots of great links out there for you to read and learn about nicotine addiction, lots of great motivators. Allen Carr's book is great too for information. Best of luck to you. bella

    NRT ie: patches etc are just nicotine and in the case of gum, flavouring, albeit useless :)

    But yes the above are just SOME of the chemicals that can be found in "fags" - there was more but I asume a mod deleted them because the list was too long, it was over three posts when I posted it lol :) Like I said, next time your 'friends' give you grief, show them that ... make them feel sick and like they should quit! Then make sure they do it without NRT ... after all .... you wouldnt want them "cheating" would you ;)
