Okay - another day and so far, so good. I've been using the Nicorette Freshmint Spray. It does indeed give me a good, solid injection of nicotine, but for anyone that wants to try it, be forewarned that it's unpleasant at first and it takes some getting used to. BUT then again, so did smoking. (Remember getting dizzy and sick on those first few? This isn't anywhere like that)
The trick is to spray it under your tongue. So open wide, look at yourself in the mirror and roll your tongue back. (No, I'm not be obscene here, though one might wonder) :)
Spray it right under your tongue and then close your mouth. You have to be ready because the first four or five times will offer a bad taste and a mild burning sensation under the tongue, right on the area where it's been sprayed. It's temporary, and if it's too uncomfortable, you can rinse with water and the sensation goes away. However, it's something that gets easier over time and it does act as a pretty effective aid. My cravings are there indeed, but I think it's far more "habit" related instead of chemical cravings for the nicotine itself.
And rice cakes help! LoL Lots and lots of rice cakes.
