Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself!! I'm Ang, and I'm currently on day 2 (well 1 day, 21 hours and 31 minutes according to my iphone app!!!) of what will hopefully be the rest of my life!! I've tried cold turkey a few times but always fallen off the wagon pretty quick (within the day), and I'm trying patches this time through a 12 week programme at my local pharmacy... So far so good, I'm amazed at how much the patches are reducing my cravings, but I have been using an inhalator from time to time when the cravings are severe as I'm really missing the old hand to mouth action... Feeling really positive at the moment, this is the first time I can honestly say I''m quitting because I want to, and I really want to be free once and for all!!! Anyway, thanks for reading, and I apologise in advance for my overuse of exclamation marks, I'm pretty excited at the moment

Reading through this forum has really helped, it's good to know so many more of you are going through the same, and keep finding more reasons to stay stopped in every post!! Keep up the good work, your doing amazing, I've tried cold turkey but always fallen off with the "just one to get me through this craving" bullsh*t, kidding myself... take care
