If today is st...
End of day 1. I've attempted before, but because i didn't really want to, i was unsuccessful. Lately i haven't been enjoying it so i got prescription patches. Tried champix before but it really messed with my mental health. I've had a few cravings today. The typical ones, morning coffee, after a meal etc but if i distract myself for about 10 minutes or so, it helps. My test will be driving to wor...
