    Great job, Galibill!  It sounds like this quit is different for you and you're feeling especially motivated and prepared.  Using a nicotine replacement therapy definitely helps to take the edge off of the cravings and withdrawals and is shown to double someone's chances of quitting.  Have you heard of the BC Smoking Cessation Program that supplies 12-weeks of free nicotine replacement?  You would visit your local pharmacy if you're interested.  As for cravings, remember that they are temporary and find something else you enjoy to keep busy.  This is often a time when people look at picking up a new hobby or something they've always wanted to try.  Keep us updated on how you're doing and if you have any questions.  All the best!!

    We all do galibill, but only you can decide to take control and motivate yourself to become tobacco free. Please read what other quitters have posted on the forum to learn good tips to help you proceed.  Also give the quit coaches a call at 1-877-455-2233 for free consultation and advice.  Welcome to the forum and I hope you take full advantage of what it has to offer and in no time you'll be free from this addiction.  Hugs, Lucille.

    I can tell you for sure, living your life in perpetual withdrawal is no way to live. Use all the tools at your disposal. Those tools may include NRT products or other quit aids (gum, spray etc). Your tools should also include education about nicotine addiction and support in your ongoing journey to freedom. The support you can get here on the forum and from quit coaches as well. The only thing you MUST abide by is NOPE! (Not One Puff Ever). Best wishes for a permanent quit!

    You should ask your Dr for a prescription for Chantix. I’ve had a few friends quit using this and they said the cravings were minimal. Talk with your Dr about it and ask if it’s paid for through the cessation program.
