Big day is no. 7 ! 1 week !

Hi everyone! I am on day 7. What gets me thru is that I snack all day long.

I read somewhere that the 3 square meals a day aint gonna work for us. That small meals thru out the day works better! Well, its working for me.

This is what I do: I have beef jerky strips, dried fruit with peanuts in it (tropical mix), and Wethers hard candies-caramel flavor.

Plenty of water all day long. By end of day, I do eat a regular meal. Which is whatever I want. I have seen no weight gain at all.

If I have a spasm or craving, I will have a 4mg lozenge to take off the edge. At nite, about 9pm, I do remove my 21 mg patch (Nicoderm Step 1).

Place new patch back on about 6am. This is working for me. I hope this bit of info will help you too...I plan to be on the 21mg patch for 6 weeks...

then step down to the 14mg patch for another month. So far so good. What really helps me, is there is no one around my job or home that smokes...

I am the last of a dying breed! Excuse the pun! Smoking 2 packs a day, 30 yrs, If I can do it, you can too!!!!! I believe in me! I am determined..

and you have to have this attitude to succeed! I hope this helps! God bless!

  • Yessss ! I feel empowered! I must admit..the patches and the lozenges are the key here for me. The snacks thru out the day help as well.. I have NOT had a major meltdown or anything...I am taking everything 1 day at a time...I want to wake up 1 day in 3 months and just breathe! I am less than 3 blocks from the Pacific Ocean...I will treat myself to a nice walk along the beach! Later this year to fly to NC. It will be nice to fly and not be wanting a smoke or being ancy cuz I am craving a smoke..I will be FREE! Thanks for the well wishes!
