I am doing ok, but a little crabby X( . I smoked my last menthol ciggy at 3pm that day and put the patch on (I am also taking the Chantix) two weeks ago started that. I am also using the herbal cigarettes (Honeyrose Blue) to smoke when I REALLY need to curb the craving. It is working - gladly, it is working. I am going to wear the patch until next Wed. I will continue to have the herbal cigs around in case I really get a craving and stay on the Chantix for a while (most recent info on it's dangers, I might not, we'll see). But, this is the hardest thing I will have DONE. I have been smoking 20 years and it is so worth it to me to have this fusion be a success. I have no choice now, I must do this for my health and for everyone around me, including my 6 year old son.
The things I've read and heard first hand from my Aunt's husband about not fusing while not giving up smoking - are nightmares and I don't want that to happen to me. So, at almost 39 years old (on Friday) I have finally given up the smokes, THANK GOD!
