5 weeks ago I was ready. Patch on, determination at the forefront of my mind.
I have tried several times to quit before, but always felt I was 'giving something I enjoyed up'
This time it was for me. I wanted to feel better, smell better and be less anxious.
I used the clear niquitin patches for 25 days at 21 mg. I found them good, but didnt wear it at night, and didn't like having it on my skin.
I stopped using them when I realised I will never light up again, and have been nicotine free for 10 days.
I felt I needed to kick the rolling ritual which the patches helped with. My cough, bad skin, sore teeth and gums were strong reminders that I will never smoke again.
I also got real stregth listening to others on this forum.
Feeling proud of myself and everyone else who is on this recovery journey. Especially in the moments when emotions or physical experiences react to withdrawal.
Chuffed. have a great day my fellow quitters.
