I'm posting to see if others have had the same problem after quitting cigarettes and ending up addicted to Nicorette Quick Mist? I saw a few posts where others have had similar trouble, but sadly I don't think many people have been able to get off of it.
Quick background: I've quit smoking cigarettes for about 4 years but that whole time I've been using the spray. 4 whole years of non-stop nicotine. I would have surely spent thousands on it over the years as the bottles built up. I've managed to go off it for a short period before due to an unrelated health scare, but stupidly I started back up again.
I'm trying to quit now (I want this, right now to be the end of it), and I honestly haven't lasted barely a few hours without it. I have 3 unopened bottles in my drawer and I'm trying to resist the urge to use it, but the nicotine cravings are so bad that I just feel horrible and miserable.
I'd like to know if anyone else is in the same boat, or has any tips on quitting? Both for cigarettes and especially NRT. Something about this is making me feel really disheartened at the fact that I've become so utterly addicted to the spray and I really just wish I could snap the hell out of this. I want to cry. The realisation that Nicorette is what I look forward to makes me feel disgusted at myself, and I can't break the habit or the feeling.
On a more positive note, my updated (as of this hour) plan is to continue to go for as long without Nicorette spray as I can, and if I do use it, limit the use to only 3 times per day and gradually cut down from there. That's how I initially quit the cigarettes until I became so frustrated that I threw my final pack in the bin and screamed. I'm determined to get through this no matter what, and if I slip up I'll just have to keep trying until I finally get there.
Sorry for the rant, I'm scared and rather sad but I hope anyone else who struggles with addiction or smoking will know that we can get past this.
