Well done! The right decision to make. For me it took 2 weeks for that craving to abate. i quit cold turkey too. Get some boiled sweets to occupy the mouth or sugar free chewing gum perhaps.

That desire may build for awhile, but remember it does go away. Hold strong. Break the back of this addiction. :slight_smile:

I think if you’re on Olanzapine then you should tell your doctor as it affects that.

I quit cold turkey years ago.

Drink plenty of water.

That’s a great idea, like @everhopeful said, depending on the amount you smoked, it may even affect your dosage so best to tell your pdoc.

I may need to lower the dose cos smoking lessens the efficiency of meds by half. So now without smoking I would need less meds I guess. I am afraid it may have an impact on my psychosis.

I think smoking is as much a habit as it is an addiction. I’ve heard that. I’ve never been a smoker so I’m not an expert. But it’s plausible.

So maybe pick up a hobby idk :neutral_face:

I reckon you will be alright cos even though you may reduce your dose, not smoking will then double the efficiency of the meds compared to what it was before…good luck with keeping off them :slight_smile:
