Today is my first day on step 2 patches - it's around 6 weeks give or take from quitting the e-cig so I'm the right time to change down a level!!
Can definitely feel the difference, but it's step 2 onto freedom
When I'm ready, I'll go onto step 3 then that's it, bye bye nicotine.
Am amazed though 'cos the step 2 patches are just cut down versions of the step 1s. Never got onto them before, just ditched them for the gum so this is all new!!
Wish I hadn't wasted so long on the e-cig, it made me have basically a 2nd quit *but* I haven't smoked, so that's the main thing.
And, in a way it's a good thing because it proved to me that I really can't have just one fag, or smoke when I feel like it - started off doing that with the e-cig and was chain smoking it by the end :/
*Has no willpower and is rubbish at moderation*
Last time I wanted a fag was May28th (stress induced not craving) and before that? Haven't a clue!! Am definitely a proper non-smoker now *and* one of the girls at work is seriously thinking about quitting 'cos she's seem me and my quit buddy do it and we were both human chimneys before like she is :eek:
What really is odd though is that my mind still romanticises the idea of smoking, can quite fancy a ciggie *until* I smell someone who has been smoking or live smoke then it dies 'cos smoke smells minging!!
