I am quitting smoking starting today

Well, I am quitting smoking starting today. I am going to be using nicotine patches and nicotine lozenges. I might also use some kind of medication if my doctor will prescribe it for me. I am worried that I will fail but I am going to try my best anyway.

Re: I am quitting smoking starting today

Good luck! I just quit cold turkey 2 days ago and it's not that bad--you just have to WANT it, you know? Like, i keep getting urges to smoke and I feel kinda crappy, but it just makes me even more determined to quit. I do NOT want to stay in withdrawal for the next 10-20 years. I tried patches, gum, prescriptions, lozenges, even tried using an e-cigarette in the past, but Allen Carr's Easyway book is the only thing that could do it for me.

Edit: lol dont you love how I'm speaking as if i've already accomplished it?

Oh and if you want the meds, best ask for it sooner rather than later, as you often have to start taking them one week before your quit date (you can smoke throughout the first week you're taking them). Watch out for weight gain with the meds.

Re: I am quitting smoking starting today

I was able to quit smoking through cold turkey, too. I had 5 attempts and I was successful in my 5th attempt. It was bumpy journey, specially that people around me are smokers, mostly. But, with my determination and support of my wife and family... I did it

Never give up... If you relapse, it's not the end. Keep trying.
