I am 54 and smoked for 41 years. I was 20-25 a day on average when I stopped but used to smoke double that for quite a few years some time ago. Anyway it was making me feel not so good mentally and physically so here is what I did
193 days ago had last cigarette – however, not counting this as I replaced the smoking with vaping 12mg nicotine, then reduced strength over this time up to 43 days ago when I cut out nicotine completely and started vaping water only – which I am still doing.. the crazy thing is.. I will panic if I don’t have it or go to shop to buy a bottle of water if im out and about just to fill it.. however, this panic and use of it is getting much less. But, the feeling of having a smoke is not getting less!
I’m still finding I get extremely anxious for a smoke and think about it quite a lot every day. I feel that the reason for me still experiencing these sensations of anxiety is either one of the following:
1. Deep down I really don’t want to quit and could happily continue smoking?
2. I am still using an ecig with water only – no enjoyment there just get a slight throat hit with the heat – so by doing this.. am I making it worse as I am getting some comfort from it but its not giving me what I need?
3. Is there another reason?
4. Or is this completely normal to feel like this at this stage?
Because I am still finding it difficult I started to look for advice and support and that’s when I came across your website/forum.. I downloaded Alan Carrs EASYWAY and Ive just started to read it..
I also have a copy of Paul Mckenna Quit Smoking today without gaining weight with hypnosis CD but haven’t tried this yet
Any advice of why I am still finding it hard and what to do would be very much appreciated
All the best
PS: Great Website..!!!!
