Hey all, this is my first post on here been reading a load of stories of success and seems you get alot of help on here.
I'm surrently on day 6 of no smoking, new years resolution n all, finding today the hardest though, I'm 23 smoked since i was 15 and recently was smoking 20 a day. I quit a few years ago for 9 months but stupidly started again until last Sunday night i smoked a cig after my dinner and had the sudden thought of thats me i'm quitting now because i want to. I have been using however 4mg nicotine lozenges for the first week to try and break the hand to move habit, i have an e-cig but trying to stay well clear of that, next week move onto 2mg then after that cold turkey, is this an ok way to try and quit or am i better just throwing away any NRT supplements and go cold turkey?
I've been busy at work all week so craving wise and thinking of it has been pretty minimal altough i work on a small shift of 9 people and 6 of those smoke so temptation has still been there, anyway obviously its saturday first full day played football this morning so didnt think of it, i'm meant to be going out for a drink in an hour but all i can think about is smoking and dont want to have a drink incase i have a few too many and it breaks me, most of my friends smoke.
Obviosuly it depends on the person but all long does the lengthy cravings last for?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
