I will try to keep this simple and not waffle. I am on day 10, using patches and lozenges.
I decided to read 'the easy way to stop smoking' and am now feeling confused. He claims that what I am doing is using the will power method and that not many people manage to quit doing this.
Also ( I didnt really appreciate this before) nicotine is a poison, so what I am doing using NRT is still poisoning myself!!
I havent finished the book yet and not sure I want to continue as it is making me feel that I am already setting myself up to fail by using NRT.
I do agree though that by telling myself that I am freeing myself as apposed to quitting (and therefore denying myself something) I am feeling better about it.......stopping smoking that is.
I'm still confused as to what to do though
Advice greatfully received
