Well It’s a new room for me so time to say hello one and all , 6 months tobacco free , its been a roller coaster ride at times but I am still here and have no intention of buckling now. How am I am doing , well although I have beaten the smoking habit into submission I am still using the NRT I still seem to require a crutch. Its probably silly to continue using the gum, I know, I am using 3 or 4 bits a day. I wouldn’t say I am addicted to the gum but I still carry it daily. I did initially use patches and gum but stopped using the patches a couple of months ago now. I chew normal sugar free gum a little also but still seem to need to have something in my pocket as a reserve. Maybe it is time to consider carrying a nicotine spray not with the intention of utilising it much but to break the habit I am on . I don’t need patches probably don’t need the gum but still feel the need for a back-up anyone familiar with my predicament.
