I was just reading some of the newest members posts, and realized I may actually be able to contribute something useful for their success in quitting!!
Ok, so in the beginning of my quit, I'd cough a lot...that's normal, as our lungs are clearing themselves out... So I would suck on cough drops... A lot!!! It numbs the throat and gave me something to do. I'm realizing that even after 12 weeks, I still suck on cough drops. The menthol eucalyptus helps take away the craving for nicotine that I may still have? I quit cold turkey and I refuse to give up my victory, so I'm positive I'll never smoke again.
But seriously, cough drops are magic!! And they help your throat and breathing at the same time!!! Yay!
