Re: almost 6 weeks smoke free
Congratulation Lorriem!!! You are doing great! I hear ya though, it's tough. I'm 7 weeks and find it's such a mental game you have to play over and over in your head. When I'm feeling positive, it's great. When I'm down, it's very hard not to give up and smoke. I have to keep saying positive things to myself so many times a day. At work, I have no cravings whatsoever now which is great. It's when I get home and have dinner, have a drink, go to a social event, etc., that it gets really hard for me.
I'm on the 14 mg patch and also using the inhaler a couple of times a day. When I'm REALLY craving, I will chew a nicotine gum. Seems to help.
Hang in there!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best wishes to you.
