finally back on track

if anyone remembers, i was posting here alot during the summer. anyway, i was taking chantix and had fallen off the wagon alot. i have not been on here because i have been smoking full time since sept.
now i am trying again with the losenges. my last cig was at 10am on nov.13th. so, at this point i have been smoke free for 4 1/2 days. i only use the losenges about 5xa day. i also keep plenty of plastic coffee stirrers on hand ! all the reasons i went back to and stayed smoking were stress related (i know, big cop-out!) also, hubby is still smoking so i had easy access to them.
thanks for listening, and i definitely need help from you all!
by the way i have had copd for 12 yrs, also a diabetic, degenerative joint and spine, fibromyalgia. i can't get much excerise, when i have a better day i catch up on housework, etc. i also have depression, mostly due to my disability.

best of luck to all of you!..............bevann

Re: finally back on track

Hi Bevann, I wrote back to you on the other thread about changes after the quit. I am using the lozenges too, about 4-5 per day because they are taking about 2 hours to dissolve. I am 35 and smoked for 15 years. I also live with my father, who continues to smoke. I lost my 30 year old boyfriend to brain cancer last summer and made the decision that It was time to do as much as I possibly could to be healthy. What a wake up call, I had always believed that I was too young to get sick, and what happened to him (he was a health conscious non-smoking vegetarian) made me realize that I am not invincible, and that I don't want to die if I have any control over my health. I hope I can be of support to you, and I know that I need as much support as I can get too! I started smoking more after he died to cope with negative feelings, so I hear you when you say you started up again because of stress. Today is one week smoke free for me, and I am already noticing some pretty big changes, so I hope that you are feeling better as well. Take care of yourself always.
