Quit the Nicotine yesterday.... smoke free 26 days
Posted 28 August 2013 - 07:07 AM
So, I quit the patch yesterday. And I slept deeper and longer last night, but that may have been assisted by a bar of dark chocolate last nite. I bought a big bar and told myself I would have 3 squares a night......... hmmm!! Dint quite work out, so now I guess I'm gonna be running round the bloody park today again !!!!
I'll post if I get a cranky, moody, hate everybody and everything feeling, which, if I follow the news will be quite soon......
Lots of hugs to all who are quitting this bloody drug..
Stay strong and bung your trAiners on..... xxx

Good move, Nic! I think you've made the correct decision when it comes to the patches. Having that constant supply of nicotine isn't going to help get over the addiction, is it?
Have you read Alan Carr's book yet? If you haven't, I would get on to it ASAP. And check out the Newbie package http://www.quitsmoki...sticky-version/
Congratulations on your 26 days without smoke - I'm sure your lungs thank you for it!

congrats on the 26 days, and congrats on choosing to go 100% nicotine free, which in my opinion is really the only way to go.

Yes, I've read Alan Carr and the newbie package. The wealth of information has really helped with the quit.
Thanks for your encouragement. I feel very strong but concerned about developing a dark chocolate addiction... Alan Carr advises against replacing eating with smoking.... he's quite right of course. It feeds the hand mouth association.....

Yeah, I really dig Carr's "no substitute" suggestion. Last time I quit using Champix and chewing regular mint gum. I didn't have too many problems, but once I was completely off cigarettes, I was almost always chewing.
Long story short, I worked for a short period of time at a high school which had a no chewing policy. And I hadn't thought about it until I read Easyway, but after teaching a really stressful class without chewing gum, I smoked a cigarette to relieve the stress. Of course, this cigarette turned into another one, which turned into a packet, which turned back into my addiction.
It's weird but, if possible, I do think it's better not to substitute at all. This is only IF it's possible, though. Eating chocolate is certainly better than smoking.
