This is my second quit. In 2010 I quit smoking cigarette using NRT.I used the patch for about 3 weeks but then I discovered the inhaler and switched to that. I got addicted to the inhaler and now 9 years later I am going through my second quit. After 9 years I started to get cravings for cigarettes and found the inhaler was nt working, so I started the patches. One day I had a cigarette and that of continued for a couple of months on and off. I could not understand what happened and started to read about nicotine addiction and that's when i realised that although i had given up smoking for 9 years i never gave up nicotine! I know its dumb but i never gave the inhaler much thought until my cardiologist made a comment about it. I am now on day 9 of my quit journey and this time its without NRT. Its important rid myself of all nicotine in my body as I have chronic lung and heart issues that are affected by nicotine. I do not understand how the NRT companies claim that these products are not addictive when nicotine is a drug like any other hard drug out there.
