Hi, I am new here. I quit a few years ago and used a message board and it really seemed to help but I have no clue which one. Helps give me something to do when I feel the need for a cig!
I didn't buy more today and just smoked my last one about an hour ago.
I've used chantix and the patches in the past. Chantix worked well the first time but honestly I just wasn't ready. Round 2 of chantix never seemed to work as good as round 1. And the patches give me rashes. I've never taken the patches long just 1-2 days and then went cold turkey after that. Although I do have patches in my cabinet if needed.
So I'll be drinking lots of water and probably a bit crabby and irritable for awhile.
Any tips? I've been a smoker for 15 years and really only tried quitting the last few years. Never made it long. The longest was a little over 2 weeks and I was doing so good, waking up and having meals without even thinking about a cig right after
What bothers me most I think would be anxiety. I don't have anxiety any other time but I am already starting to get it now just because I know I have none left! Just feels like someone is pushing down a bit on my chest. Lots of ice water and deep breathes. I've heard cinnamon gum helps so I should grab some of that tomorrow.
How do you guys deal with people out in public smoking? I remember last time I quit leaving the grocery store I could just smell if someone was in the parking lot smoking.
Anyways I should stop rambling. It's 2 am and I am off to bed. I'll be back first thing in the morning!
