Am into Day 16 and so are Gemma and Carolrose
My ulcers are now history, can just about see the biggest but it doesn't hurt any more - hopefully that's the back of them now - but I know they're a common quitting thing - all the poison and all the hot smoke I guess.
Do feel a bit strange, like something's missing (normal I know) but it's a question of getting into the routine of not smoking!! My life was run since I caved by the next cigarette, so not having that is a shock but a good one!!
Can't begin to describe how good it feels not having to go outside whatever the weather, or hang as far out of the kitchen door as possible to smoke as fast as possible, just to feel normal.
There was nothing special about how a fag made me feel, it was just getting back to a normal state - so when the craves are over and done with that should be me all the time
Going to give the mini lozenges a go, am trying to avoid the gum as much as poss because it makes me bite my tongue (oddly more than Extra does) and I don't want another batch of ulcers!!
Oooh and my patch is itching like hell this morning :eek:
