Today is the start of my 5th week of freedom from the stinky fags - there's been times when I didn't think I was going to get here, but this forum has helped loads, it has really saved my quit - so I want to say a huge thank you to everyone 'cos I owe you!! :cool:
I'm trying to reduce how much NRT I use - am going to be on patches for the length of the course, maybe a bit longer :eek: but really don't want to risk losing my quit by coming off them too early - but do want to get off the gum if possible, except for emergencies. I haven't been using lots, just 1-3 pieces a day of 2mg gum but I do want it over with if that makes sense.
Anyway I haven't had any gum today, just got my patch on and I have to be honest am really feeling it!! Can't call it a craving 'cos I *really* don't want a cigarette - maybe 'cos I'm so far into my quit? - but I have got withdrawals again and in a really odd way I'm glad 'cos it means the nicotine monster is starving. :cool:
Thanks again to everyone for your support and encouragement!!
