The other day marked 5 weeks smoke free and I am completely stoked!!
I'm using a patch but have slowly started to reduce how long I wear it for the past week because I do fully understand that the use of NRT products aren't forever. At the start, I used to have around 6 NRT lozenges a day also. I'm in the process of trying to reduce these also. Yesterday I only had 3 lozenges because I bought a box of Eclipse Peppermint Mints to see how I go. I'm happy to say that for me, it appears to be working. I would have already had a lozenge to day by now but I used a mint instead and happy to say, no cravings.
If I can continue to cut back slowly, I'll be very happy.
Most days now, I barely think of smoking but every now and then, I'll have a day of quite strong cravings but then it eases for numerous days again.
My Quitline counsellor has advised me to not jump too soon because some apparently quit NRT too early and relapse.
I know this won't ever happen to me though.
Stay strong all.
