Whoohooo Jan, it's finally arrived..... The first day of the rest of your life.. (No pressure 😉)

I'm delighted your back on it and you've got some help with NRT. Sounds like your well prepared 😊 With the patches make sure you carry a spare and alternate the side of body and use a different location each time😊 Also try taking it off 30 mins before bed as this could help reduce the weird dreams 😊

We're all routing for ya 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🚭🚭🚭🚭🚭🚭🚭🚭

Good luck for tomorrow Jan! 🚭

I think it's fine to use whatever help you can - whatever it takes! 👍😃

Just know this site will help us all

Welcome back Jan💐

Congrats on an important decision to stop smoking... I remind myself daily why I cannot smoke anymore.... Stroke runs in our family among women smokers and I care about our members who are suffering COPD among other smoking related illnesses... All the best 👍🏻🇨🇦

Hi ya Jan, its lovely to have you back with us :) :) and am sooo happy you are going to go for it again :) :)

I see your using the patches and mouth spray :) to which both are excellent if used rite :) :) Our lovely Droopy has given you some great advice about the patches :) :)

Mouth spray --- this is something else :o if you spray it strait into your mouth, you may get hiccups :o Try using one finger to sort of pull your cheek out soooo, you can spray it onto the inside of your cheek :)

If you still get hiccups, then try spraying it onto the back of your hand and just lick it off :) oooooor, spray it onto a clean finger and just dab it onto your upper gum :) this way it will last longer :) but please dont rub it in, cos this could give you a burning feeling :o

Always shake it before you use it :) and perhaps give it a day or so to get used to it, cos it can take a bit of time for your body to get used to it :o

Good luck on day one Jan :) :) and if ya need any help, you just come a shouting please :) and we will try to help you :) :)

Hello Jan,your going to be fine--Keep that determination--you must be somewhat familiar with the routine and feelings when you quit--Just be fearless and make up your mind im not going to try again im going to make it this time--It is tough but you are tougher--It is a rough drug--but it is your enemy and wants to harm you--so do battle and win this time--and we will all rejoice with you and support you on your journey--Love,MmeT

Best decision ever - now 9 months smoke free and no regrets at all. Huge relief to be free from smoking, healthier, richer and I don't smell any more! Biggest plus is no more bloody guilt about what I am doing to myself. Both of my parents died of lung cancer and still I smoked - crazy eh! Not any more - I used the NHS support and had Champix - wierd side effects but bloody worked - really helped me to give up - not plain sailing but a whole lot easier than when I've tried before. Wishing you loads of luck and use this site for support because there are some amazing people here who are complete strangers but care enough to want you to stop smoking which is pretty bloody cool. Hang on in there.. Look at that pic you've chosen - you want to be flying free in the fresh clean air..stay can do it. X
