A bit if history.. I was a smoker for about 4 years and quit on a whim one day at work because I didn't feel like smoking anymore. I took straight to the Nicorettw Quickmist and have been on it for about 5 years.
The spray has become such an awful habit to the extent that I can have a cigarette (ocasionally) and feel like (and have) a spray immediately after. I started with 1 spray and then went up to 2 and sometimes its 3.
There are times I have it so often it actually makes me feel physically sick. I get awful tastes in my mouth frequently like a rotting tooth taste but my teeth are fine (dentist checked), I have frequent throat problems like clearing my throat constantly and obviously it's causing side effects. I go through a 3 pack of spray every week.
If I can't find my spray immediately when I feel like one I start having a mild anxiety attack. I could be lying on it for all I know but I'll turn a room upside down to try to find it. I feel without it I can't socialise, I feel on edge and feel different to my normal self. It's become my security blanket and I practically sleep with it in my hand. This is bad!!
Im down to finally contemplating quitting cold Turkey and have been going nuts on the thing trying to make the most of my last few sprays but I feel anxious in advance for when it's gone.
I sought help from the doctor and she just recommended me to a psychiatrist 😂
Tell me there is hope in quitting this horrid addiction... please.
