I'm in a yo-yo pattern and trying to figure out why. Since the middle of January I have been fiddling around trying to quit. High dose patches left large irritations but found the 7mg was bearable but around day 5 to 7 my mind demanded a cig that I just couldn't shake so gave in. Regained my resolved, restarted and the same thing happened. Next I tried cold turkey twice. It works until around day 3 to 5 and then I get the mind thing again. I can handle the first few days of withdrawal symptoms but then the feelings change and my resolve goes out the window. Do you have suggestions? I've also tried telling friends about my quit but it seems like as soon as I do, I end up having a cig.
I want to quit and part of the want is due to a new job where it's literally impossible to smoke during the day. I like knowing I don't stink and my sinuses and lungs feel great. It this last issue that I need help on getting past.
You guys are amazing. I read your posts every day for support to keep trying!
