Quit 133 days ago
3 months today! And day 4 without the patch - I was nervous to stop using the patch but I haven't noticed a difference.  I know I'm not "out of the woods" in terms of conquering my addiction, but the three month mark is an important personal milestone for me, because three months was my previous smoke-free record from my first quit attempt in 2009. This time I feel stronger and more prepared for a smoke-free life, and this forum has made a huge difference! Thank you for sharing your stories and for your support - it really helps to know we aren't in this alone!

    Well done EPerry. You have obviously learned from your first attempted quit as well and brought that lesson learned into, what will become, a future built on one great choice after another. You are awesome! Remember NOPE (Not One Puff Ever). If you do that, good things will happen.... I love 100% guarantees!

    EPerry Great job. Glad you slid into being patchless  so easily. I found it very difficult.  Give yourself a huge pat on the back👍😉

      I may have spoken too soon on that one, Shannon. After I posted that I realized I have been snacking more and having trouble getting to sleep since I stopped the patch. It's amazing how the withdrawal symptoms just lurk in the background and you don't even associate them with quitting until you stop to think about it!
