Default Day 40

Day 40, still smoke free.

I'm feeling a lot better today, have passed my cold on to my husband though, he isn't too pleased.

It still seems awfully strange at times not smoking. I still forget at times and think "I'll just have a cig before I do that".

Hiya Wendyann
Big Congrats on 41 days and dont let your oh steal your thunder with turning a cold into manflu

Yea passing thoughts for a bit longer still as apart from our addiction its also a habit to break which doesnt always go away overnight.

I did patches and dropped slowly from 21mg to 14mg. You wont notice much with the positive mindset you are showing

Good Times hey and they will get so much better with practice

Well Done you Star, just keep building on your success to keep your smoke free life going for our ultimate goal

Freedom
Chrissie x

Day 42, still smoke free.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

It's reassuring to know other people have been down this route, especially with patches, and survived.

Good luck to you as well kitkat, hope the drop down is kind to you.

Default Patches..

Hi wendyann,

Well done on 42 days and for sticking with the patches that long. I always intended doing the full course myself, but just got so sick of putting them on everyday, itching like crazy for 1/2 hour and being left covered in red blotches. I ended up doing 2 weeks step 1, 1 week step 2, and I think 4 days on step 3 before giving them up.

I can't say I really noticed any big changes with the step downs, maybe just a couple of odd dreams again, but I see those as a bonus.

Anyway, just wanted to say well done you.

Day 43, still smoke free.

I dropped down a size in patch today. Must admit I do feel a bit more "jittery". I'm sticking with the plan though.

Day 44, still smoke free.

I still feel a little "on edge" and having a few more cravings than usual but I suppose it is to be expected when you drop down in patch strength. It is all doable though. I'm really trying to contain my appetite, I seem to finish one meal and then am looking forward to the next.

Well done Wendyann,

I step down next week. Last time I quit I just felt a bit woozy for a couple of days. Took me a while to realise it was because of that though. I stopped using the patches early last time but gonna run the course this time.

So are you on dinner/tea allready today then
