After two weeks off work with a dreadful chest infection and after over 40 years of smoking, I quit, I've had enough, I want to break free (there's a song in there somewhere). Whilst picking up my prescription for anti-biotics I picked up a packet of NRT lozenges and thought, Let's do it. I am now on day three, No fags and using 2mg lozenges at about 8 a day. I seem to be coping but I have to bear in mind that my chest infection has really laid me low and is a wondrous incentive. I am still feeding my body with nicotine through the lozenges and I am concerned that should I carry on as I am, in a few weeks time I will have to give up the Nicotine fix altogether. Anyone been there, done that, etc? Is giving up the lozenges js as bad as giving up smoking? The past three days, I have been at home alone, this has been a bonus as I can run round naked screaming or leap out of windows when it all gets to bad, but tomorrow I am back at work, someone tell me I will be OK.. Any re-assurance will sure help me out.
