I have not smoked tobacco for over 1.5 years and now I have not had any nicotine gum at all in this month, I think I am managing to stop my nicotine habit.
I’ve been trying to quit for the last 10 years or so. Once I completely quit on the patch and had one smoke a short time after, and bam! Back to the same old. But I’ll probably keep trying, I get free patches if I talk to my med doctor about it. But it’s not an easy thing to do, so congrats to you @mjseu
This is awesome news! Proud of you!
Yeah well done. Nicotine is such a hard thing to say goodbye too. Hope you stay off the stuff! You’ll feel so much better sooner than you think!
Good going @mjseu!
I quit cigarettes cold turkey years ago.
I’m proud of myself.
Congratulations, a question to all as they have done to stop smoking? It’s hard for me to spend 30 minutes without a cigarette
That’s how I was when I was smoking. Have you tried NRTs?
Ive got nodulesq on myqmy lungs. So i smoke ecig still but have to quit soon. I smoke the zero nicotine.
Smoking it helps the nerves i guess.anx
Nice going, @mjseu
Way to go!
praise to you!
Good to see you around.
Your father died which can feel overwhelming or sad but you seem to be coping well and some people fall ba k on smokes when they are upset but you did not so extra good going to you.
I quit over ten years ago but my boyfriend smokes.
I never smoked and I feel like a freak in the schizophrenia community. I do often wonder if my eating disorder is an attempt to satisfy what would otherwise be a cigarette habit. For one thing I like to bite on hard candy to get that brief intense burst of flavor that results. I also like an intense salty flavor. The refusal to smoke is non-negotiable. I’ve seen people in my family have a terrible time with it. But i notice that I have addictive tendencies too.
@DNA If you ask me, I’ve only used nicotine patches and they did not work
Have you tried a higher dosage?
No, I’ve only tried the patches and they peel off my skin and smoked the same way using the patches. I have not used in higher doses.
Try shaving a small patch wherever you put your patches. Happened to me too, hair makes the patch fall off.
Yaaay, such great progress!! I’m happy for you.
Congratulations,! That’s quite an accomplishment.
