Today is day 1 of Chantix.
I've tried quitting intermittently over the last couple of years, but this time I am not pulling any punches.
If anyone has questions on this program/wants to quit send me a PM- my wife recently started a new job, where she is the Tobacco Treatment Coordinator and works heavily with this program.
I'm 10 weeks without a single drag. Been weening myself off all summer, from a pack a day to about a pack a week by the time I 'quit'. Been using the Nicorette lozenges throughout. I'm good in relation to the cigs now, barely even bothers me at this point, but I can't seem to stop these damn lozenges. When I run out, and say I'm not getting another pack, I end up back at the store to buy more that same day, because I'm scared the craving will turn into me picking up a cig. I did go from the 4mg to the 2mg though, and now I'm good with that. So while I'm no doubt happy that I'm approaching 3 months of being smoke free, I know that I'm still not in the clear due to my new addiction to these damn mints.
As an FYI, I've tried both vaping and cold turkey in the past, and never even made it 24 hours without smoking, much less this long. Now my will is extremely strong not to start back the clock, just have to get past this new hurdle.
Thanks a lot, really appreciate it. I really think it's for good this time, I enjoy seeing this little day counter widget thing on my phone add up!I wouldn't stress about the Nicorette at this point. You may be trying to rush the process.
It has only been 3 months and you have come a long way IMO. You have dropped to 2mg and you have truly accomplished a lot in 3 months. Be proud of that and just keep going on slowly weaning yourself off the mints. If you are still at 2mg mints after say 6 months then maybe you should try something else. Great job!
Awesome... A lot of cash saved so far. Good looking Son, (I assume), you have there! My boy just turned 4....Thanks a lot, really appreciate it. I really think it's for good this time, I enjoy seeing this little day counter widget thing on my phone add up!
