Hi, I’m a social smoker what is the best NRT to use when drinking? Most effective you have found
Today is 6 weeks since I started my umpteenth and final quit! I do get cravings still but just play it forward to that couple of minutes of a nicotine high resulting in me being a full-time nicotine addict again and it truly is not worth it. Smelling the stale smoke on others also helps my resolve. I really didn't realize how awful I smelled all of the time. Glad to not have to go out in the cold...
The cravings for me yesterday were terrible. So I would get up from my desk and walk to my bedroom. It's ten steps either way, so as I walked I took deep breaths of clean air and told myself I am profiting from inhaling all that clean air into my lungs and my mouth will continue to stay clean and free of tobacco.

Hi all. My story is that I have mouth cancer and need to stop smoking. I would think this would be a good motivation. My motivator does not seem to be very powerful.

So I’m 4 days in. My mental health is completely all over the place.
I’m craving a smoke right now!! But I don’t want to stuff up the hard work I’ve done so far.

I’m worried I’m going to relapsed and I want to prevent that as much as I can!!
Thank you ...
Closing in on 5 weeks quit and the cravings are less. I’m feeling much more confident. I’m finding the best way to beat cravings is distraction. Whatever you can think of to help. Write a list of things you can do instead of smoking. Who wants to smoke anyway it has nothing going for it - super expensive, causes cancer and heart disease, ageing of the skin plus it really stinks. So many other rea...
Tip 1 - Podcast "The Hypnotist" - find a smoking episode and listen to it while going to sleep for the first week, each day pick a different one. Turn the volume low just above a whisper and let it play through the night, other episodes will follow but they are positive and confidence building. Hope it makes you feel great like it did me, and took the struggle out of trying to quit.
