Re: Hi, I'm new...
Be sure to keep busy with some hobby, arts or exercise. Get sugar free hard candy, straws, etc. Just be sure to keep the hand busy. If the meds does not work, either hypnosis, or just sheer will power might work. You have to keep trying till something works. It is never easy, I had smoked as long as you did, and got to a point of three packs a day. Just was ready to quit and did the patch for two weeks. At that time, they had cost a bit more than a carton of cigs. So after the patches ran out, went cold turkey. Been somber for 11 years. Just keep trying, you will make it. Hugs for you today.
Never give up.
