6 month NOPE, one week off NRT and I struggled

Hope everyone is well and kicking those cravings into touch

As I said in my last post, I eventually stopped with the gum. I have been fine but suddenly had cravings mid morning, I resisted but yesterday and today I allowed myself one piece of gum.

It took the craving away and on both occasions I've then not thought about it, all day. Im a little annoyed as I think if I had binned all my gum I wouldn't have done it but it proved how deep the psychological addiction is , as I literally have not smoked for 6 months and had no nicotine for 5 days.

I decided im going to try out some vitamins which apparently help with serotonin. I believe my caving in to this urge was down to mood (anxiety and depression).

I would make it clear that as its been 6 months I have no interest in smoking at all. Really absolutely NOPE.

I'm going to try B complex and if i can get it 5 THP which both apparently help mood.

Here goes human guinea pig time
