so I have been using the tips I got from www.becomeanex.org
I haven't had a smoke with a cup of coffee in at least a week. The craving is still there, but I can now easily drink coffee without them.
I no longer smoke in the car. Tough at first, but was probably the easiest to get past. I plan to ask my hubby to not smoke in the car anymore either.
I think I'm going to give the coffee thing two more days...
Which means my quit day will be Tuesday July 29th. I also will be using the gum... which has helped me before.
I have tried quitting many times. I've tried hypnosis, zyban, welbutrin, the patch, the gum. The longest I have made it was three weeks. I went to a RedSox game with some friends, had a few beers, and that craving kicked into overdrive. I thought ohhh I'll just have one. Ok one more wont hurt. By the time we were headed home, I was buying a pack of smokes again.
I am confident that I can do it this time. Because of my meds, I can't have a beer... so I don't need to worry about that. I've trained myself to drink coffee without cigs, so that shouldn't be too hard either *crossing fingers*
Everyone wish me luck!! Send some good vibes and happy thoughts my way. I will keep you all posted on my progress.
Soon to be an "EX"!
