Nicotine replacement

avatar-icon

Does anyone know how long the nicotine replacement orders take? Ordered patches over a week ago and nothing has come. Bought cigarettes today but don’t want to be smoking them. They taste disgusting. Oh and do I have to go back to day one now?

Day 2

Second patch today - personally find gum marginally more effective - keeping busy on the home front - reading 'early days' posts from others is great - SO hard thus far but staying on track ODAAT

Hi. I'm Tracey and I have been smoking on and off since I was 10 years old, when you could nick a packet out of a carton from my mums stash and she woudn't notice. I'm ow 45 years old.
I did some research on what I could take to keep me calm, as I know from previous attempts I am a total bitch and my husband can't do anything right.
I'm usually pretty ok at not getting any cravings in the mornings but the afternoons and nights I find the hardest, so I started my patches at 3.30pm, and I also took a St Johns wort tablet at the same time. I got one craving the first night but most importantly my husband was safe from my mouth or moods.
The next morning I took another St Johns Wort tablet along with Q10, valerian root, spirulina and ginseng at night. These supplements are for reducing cravings, removing antioxidants, providing energy and promoting healthy organs.

I am now on day four and have only had about 2 cravings per day and if i'm feeling crumpy I worn my husband and seem to be able to keep it under control. I believe these supplements are helping me remain calm and I am having way less cravings than I normally would.


I have also kept myself busy, we milk cows anyway but in between milking can be when the boredom steps in, so I have been doing lots of gardening and preserving. This helps occupy my time. I have brought some puzzles also so if I have very little to do( doesn't happen to often) or I am lacking in energy I can sit down and still keep my hands busy.


I'm also not going to town by myself, as I know the temptation to buy another packet of smokes is too great at the moment.


Thats all

Tracey


Yesterday was a good test, I had a young man here, who went out and had a smoke, I smelt it and was fine.

34 days smokefree

avatar-icon

Well my household and myself are shocked. This is the longest ive been without a smoke. And its been alot of hard work.

It has been tempting to light up, specially when im tired or stressing out. But ive not picked up a ciggy. Ive become quite self aware especially when I feel a bout of grumpiness coming on. Taking a few deep breaths until I feel calm helps.

HEALTHWISE I feel great. No coughing. No wheezing. Keeping up my walking helps with stress. Drinking water helps as well.

Keep focused ,,,its not easy but it does get better.

First Day

First day almost complete! Started the day a little cranky and short tempered but just received my patches which seem to be helping. Still craving, but haven’t touched a cigarette and I’ve saved $11 so far!
