Hi all, I have been on this journey now for 5 weeks but I reset my quit date to last Sunday as I had a few slips. After reading NRT info, which is available on the website, I decided to use the patches for the 3 months to reduce cravings. I realise they come and go and can be intense, but given how long I have smoked for (33 years), I think I will keep the patches on now. I put on this afternoon ( I have several boxes lying around) and it does make me feel better actually. It is the step 2, 14 mg. The research on the website said that NRT and combined ones gives one the best success rate. I did hypnosis (very expensive!!) and it wasn't effective.
Cold Turkey I realise works for a lot of people, but the cravings float around alot and my guy is coming back with his ciggies, so I think it will be easier to resist if I have patches on for a few months.
Stay strong. It's great to read people's stories and experiences.
