Well, it’s been 1 month for me and I’m so very proud of myself. I’m using the nicotine patch and occasionally I chew a lozenge. My biggest craving is with my 1st cup of coffee, so I find having a lozenge really helps. My next hurdle is mid-afternoon and again a lozenge. The benefits have far outweighed my cravings. I can take wonderful deep breaths, I can walk without my legs having pain and my cat and clothes smell so much better. After being a smoker for 58 years I am committed to never lighting up again. Next hurdle, 2 months. I can do it, I can do it, I’ve got this one!!!
