Hello everyone. I wanted to introduce myself in the hope that this forum can be a source of help for me and that I can offer help to others.
I quit smoking on the 7/9/14 through the use of patches. I had been a heavy smoker for the past twenty years. I was initially quite surprised at how easy I was finding it (I took to the patches like a duck to water and I now highly recommend them to every poor smoker that is unfortunate enough to come across me!). I finished using the patches after about five or six weeks and it has generally been alright. Although this past few weeks, maybe month, has been quite difficult.
Does anyone else, this far into their quit, feel that life would be much easier if we were smokers again? I sometimes feel that I am on the cusp of giving in to it. It has been about three continuous months of no nicotine in my system so I am very dubious about using any substitutes. Does anyone have experience of returning to use (either smoking or e-cig, gum, patch) temporarily after a similar length of time?
Any feedback or advice would be well received and appreciated. Thanks x
