I've been trying to quit for 20 years. My longest, lasting around 6 months, my reason was , I had 2 girlfriends die within 1 month with lung cancer, aged 41& 39. My mother smokes, each time she use to visit ,I would start smoking again. . It has got to the stage where I'm exhausted from trying to quit. Mum was up here at Easter and I could here this real scary cough coming out of her. I just didn't want a smoke. I feel like this time I know I will be successful, where other times I was just hoping . It wasn't until I began to get frequent lung infections, was hospitalised in 2014 with pleurisy, it scared me. Which was my wake up call. I have a pack in the cupboard for a month now, and it doesn't phase me. It's made me feel successful I'm not one bit tempted. I always found the lozenges the best, but I freak out if I think I'm going to run out. It was when the company stopped making them in 2015, I started smoking again.so glad they brought them back.
I reduced to 1.5 mg this week, thinking this would be hard, but it was heaps easier than the 4 mg. the more nicotine I have the more I need. So I'm feeling confident that I'm on a home run.
Feeling good after 4 weeks, no cough, but feeling fatigued all the time. So I just meditate , on my back a couple of hours a day.
All the best with each and everyone's journey in being free !!! :-)
I'm looking forward to reading your stories! Xx
