It's been quite a while since I posted on this site, so thought I would send a little update. I am now at 130 days smoke free. I feel great and seldom crave, except when I am having drinks but in those situations I just take a couple of puffs off my husbands ecig which has no nicotine, just vapour and that seems to do the trick. It seems if I can just hold it while in a party situation with other smokers, it really does the trick and honestly, I'm holding it more than puffing on it. After 35 years of smoking and many failed attempts, I really think this has been the key to my success (that and champix!). I always caved when under the influence of a few drinks - really makes for poor judgement :). I feel confident that I won't smoke again, and I have never been able to say that before. I know I can never have even one cigarette because I am an addict!
So stay strong everyone, do what you need to do to be successful! Some would consider my ecig a bit of a cheat, but I dont, it's an aid, actually a prop because there's nothing in it! Bottom line, it works for me so I am thrilled. Do what works for you and I wish you all the best!
