Hi Hun

Congrats on coming back and saying basically enough is enough. I know you can do this as like you have said you have done it before.

I used champix to start off my quit and even though i never completed the course i have stayed smoke free so maybe that may be of use to you.

Anyhow, i would make an appt to see a quit nurse or other HCP and see what they can offer you and get back on that wagon as soon as you can.

Again good luck hun and welcome back :)


thankyou,ive got 2 cigs left then my patch going on!!!know its not going to be easy,but im going for it!!will come on here as much as i can x


Hi .. how are you getting on Becca ?

I use t patches NiQuitin 24 hr

im on 14 mg now

after 8 weeks on 21mg

the nurse's at my doctors are so sweet

they are so pleased i havent smoked :)

they are carefully nursing me thro my quit

i see them every 2 weeks

i am staying on 14mg patches for 4 weeks

then drop to 7 mg

i also have my nicorette inhalator .. which is invaluable

for the hand to mouth thing

its something to suck on Ha'

i started off using 12 cartridges a day !

now im using 3 or 4

Best Wishes with your quit

Regards River xx
