Am trying patches and a lozenge with this quit, My trigger is having smokes in the house, something I can't avoid.

    Well made it through to a week Hurray! I can feel the enthusiasm waning and I often think of drawing a cigarette deep into my lungs and feeling the whoosh as my chemicals get excited. I think its called romancing the cigarette. I have to be on my guard and preserve my quit, I am not going backwards, they only cause death and disease.
    Kind regards

    Getting this thing sorted, the quit I mean, have had one massive craving but I just went to bed and pulled the blankets over my head, can't smoke there and rode it out. Get minor cravings, have done with the lozenge but there there If I need them, Still using two patches, one in the morning and one at night. The dreams are pretty wild but am coping
    Best of luck to all other quitters,
    Kind regards
