A little update

Well 5 weeks in and things seem to be settling down a little.... Getting to sleep is still an issue for me but once asleep I am managing to be much more settled and waking feeling refreshed.

I am still using the niquitin lozenges but using the 2mg ones and only using 3-4 within a day. I use these at the times i feel my anxiety building due to the cravings and they are helping a great deal.

There is no doubt in my mind that I am going to succeed at this I just need to keep chipping away one day at a time :)

That’s fantastic 5 weeks is a super achievement 🙌🙌🙌😀👍 I’m only in day 8 but cutting the caffeine out after lunchtime helped a lot with the insomnia I got soon after quitting. Hope yours settles soon also 😴❤️

You are doing great, the weeks are flying by but with each day I feel the benefits however I can also sniff out a smoker who is miles away and i am horrified that i used to smell like that!

Well done tiggs 5 weeks and counting.

Your getting to sleep problems will eventually disappear, I know it's not easy but try not to over think it.

You're doing really well👏. Keep in touch.👍🚭xx

Thank you, to be honest I am getting used to them now and work have been really supportive. I explained to them what is happening and they have allowed me to work from home a few days each week so that I can sleep later on a morning (I commute over an hour to work each day and have to leave home at 0600hrs). This is helping massively and i am feeling very positive about it all now.

Well done tiggs, you are succeeding very nicely indeed with 5 weeks under your belt already👍

It’s a great feeling not smelling of smoke anymore👌

Hope you’re going to treat yourself to something nice for all your hard work🛍😉💐xx
