Still smoke free, however I have let myself use nicotine gum, and now I am concerned that I am getting addicted to the gum, and I don't want that either. I actually hate the gum, it hurts my jaw. But I am not sure I can trust myself not to smoke, if I don't use the gum. What a dilemma.......... staying busy though, getting ready to paint a mural I have been commissioned to do, so I am busy with everyday life and hardly realize that I am not smoking. It hits me at weird times. Like after I eat. I know this is normal, but my goodness, its annoying. I often have wished in the past that I had never started smoking in the first place. Its good to be free, but there are occasions I do mourn the loss of the ciggertte you have at certian times. The big monster dosn't want to die. I am trying to hang in there, and stay smoke free, for whatever life has to throw at me. A baby or not.
I am still a newbie too......but I discovered a product that has been helping me......I started with the gum, but then I wasn't following the directions, so my girlfriend talked me into trying the patch....which is working pretty good with the cravings.....but I ate a lot of hard candy, as a subsitiute too, but that wasn't good for my teeth, so I discovered these things called JuJu stxs....if you google that it will show you the website you can buy them on.....they are bamboo toothpicks ( I tried regular toothpicks but they would get too soggy too quickly) that are flavored....I like them all....there is Clove, Mint and Cinnamon.......they cost 3.99 for a container and they last a long time,,,,,cheaper than ciggs. And better for you too. They satisfy my wanting something in my mouth....they were actually invented by someone to help a friend with his smoking. If I feel nervous, I can bite down on this and it relieves the tension, when I would normally light a smoke, like coming out from being inside a store, I pop one in my mouth, and its becoming a habit.....also I do hobbies like crocheting, and knitting,,,,,,I actually used to chain smoke while doing my hobbies, but now I can comfortably do them and not feel a need to chain smoke......smoking is something that you get used to doing over and over.....so its going to take a while to get used to doing something else.
