Good morning all!
So the first thing my dox told me when I got diagnosed is that I absolutely have to quit smoking IMMEDIATELY!
So naturally 2 months later im finally trying. Ofcourse in the past i tried quitting many times. When i was very young i quit cold turkey and for 7 years I didnt smoke. After I started again (stupid i know) for the last 12 -13 years i have been smoking with brief periods of quitting for a few months in between. I used the nicotine patch and it worked the first time for me,but as soon as i was supposed to quit using it I just couldnt go without nicotine and i started to smoke again. The next few times i tried to quit i also tried to use the patch but the thing wasnt effective at all then.
I got the patches again,i will try...i failed 2 days in ..but will try again...although im worried it wont work.
A lot of people are walking around with vaping devices. Is that acceptable with someone with RA? And is it better for a long term quit?
Does anyone here have a succes story? Please share.
