Hi Everyone, been stopped nearly 9 weeks and having a really bad week - gagging for a cig and fed up of shoving food in my mouth instead - not to mention how enormous I feel. Have put over a stone on in weight. I stopped because I was bordering on COPD, which turned out to be Asthma so have a stronger reason for stopping this time - but it's staying stopped that's the hardest for me. It's supposed to get easier isn't it? I've used just about every aid: patches, gum, lozenges, hypnotherapy (£120) and read Allen Carr's book (which was brilliant) as well as currently attending Smoking Cessation. I'm desperate to stay stopped so registered here for a moan. Feel a bit better for it too. Good luck all!
