Don't want to hijack Magicbunny's thread so am going to say this here instead.
Since I quit (15 weeks ago tonight ) I've not smoked once - that's fab and am delighted about that, even better is that I don't want to either. This is now the second longest time I've gone without a fag since I stupidly got myself hooked!!
Since I quit I've used:
Patches with the odd bit of gum
Tried lozenges but they gave me a sore throat
But it has started really getting on my wick that despite all that I'm *still* hooked on bloody nicotine :mad:
Much less than before - am using an e-cig that despite being labelled "strong" doesn't have the same effect on me as a fag, and I was smoking lights at the end - and am not using the equivalent of 20-odd a day either!!
Even so, it's irritating me to go through withdrawal, grumpiness and so on every flipping day because of being hooked.
So, I've ordered Allen Carr's book - should be here in a few days - and hopefully that's going to help me get off it!!
It *is* a bit scary for me, I don't have a lot of will-power (hence the e-cig) and really don't want to end up failing - have gone too far for that and am *not* going back to day 1.
Although I don't smoke, and am happy to go the rest of my life without seeing, smelling or touching another fag the thought of not having anything is frightening - and yes I know how pathetic that sounds :rolleyes:
