    Good for you deciding to make a change for the better. While nrt's can help ease you along , you also need the mindset, the acceptance of never smoking again. When you welcome the change rather than fear it, the journey is much easier and sustainable. Stick with this forum while you go through the process and in the future. Remember N>O>P>E Not One Puff Ever!

    Welcome Gemma23. You are not alone in your journey, as Happiness has suggested it is the mindset that needs to be re wired, along with other NRT aids, you need to read more and decide where you are in relationship to nicotine or cigarettes, work on your strategies daily, and keep NOPE on your list (Not one puff ever). Others will be helping you if you need to return anytime.

    Hi Gemma. Patches are fine if used correctly. You dont need to stay on them for long. I used them for a month, just to get me started. With positive thinking and determination, a month was all i needed. I didnt miss them at all when i threw them away. If patches help you at the start of your quit, thens thats great. Just remember that the companies that make them want you to stay on them for months so that they can make money. You dont need to. 1 month is all you need if you have the right mindset and cant go cold turkey. Stay strong 💞
