Hello all, i quit on Friday the 15th and today is day 10.
This is my first post but i have read everything on the site! The forum has kept my going so far
I am using 25mg patch and 4mg lozenges.
The first 4 days were great, unexpected to say the least and i thought "wow, this is easy!". But then day 5 hit and the massive cravings started, day 6 was the same and day 7 was a nightmare :(. Day 8 was a slight relief but day 9 and today have been the worst yet.
I do not seem to have problems with anything else other than an almost overwhelming sensation in my throat/chest area. I have read alot of post but everyone describes thier "crave" a desire to smoke but noone mentions a physical feeling of burning or irrataion in the airways.
I suffer from acid reflux too and maybe the burning i get is that, but it is that exact feeling that makes me want to smoke! (maybe thats my trigger)
I have never been closer to buying some cigs today because my brain is telling me this feeling isnt going away and something must be wrong. I mean, surely it isnt normal to be on 50+ mg of NRT per day and still have constant cravings? its none stop, not just 3 mins as people have mentioned.
Sorry for going on a bit.
