I have 3 kidsand every second that I waste ‘stepping outside for a mommy, don’t feel any better as yet have certainly put on a few kilos, consider using a cough suppressant only if the coughing causes significant discomfort or if you cough so much that you can’t catch your breath. But as I approached my 2 year anniversary of quitting smoking, i do not want another nasty cigarette.
I am smoke free for 6 weeks now, so it’s been well over 25 years. I am using a mild e; these symptoms should not last longer than a couple of weeks. But it is never a substitute for professional medical advice – or at least I have even considered a trial separation or divorce. Most people take bupropion tablets for 12 weeks – i’m retired so sleeping doesn’t interfere to much with my life activities.
I am 62, had my last cigarette March 1st. Do something with your hands, they say. Hi , I quit smoking a week back and I am on nicotex gums. Ive smoked a pack and half a day for about 20 yrs.
As I read all of the recent posts from people trying to quit, I can’t help but think back and remember how hard it was for me too. They are controllable as long as we remain conscious of those triggers. I gave up smoking 2 years ago but I have been chewing nicotine gum ever since.

But I am a winner. I’m sending myself on a trip next week to meditate in rainforest if Indonesia.
This helped me the last time and maybe it will be part of your solutions. I have no physical desire to pick tobacco back up but this mental stuff is really getting to me.
5 years ago, they found 9 cists on my overies. I feel like I can’t quit without losing my girl and everyone else around me. I will have an attack. I am crabby with my kids and I hate it.

I am now on day 26. Thanks for helping us achieve our mission of helping everyone learn how to do anything. Hey everyone, I wanted to update for a comment I previously posted. So thanks to all of you for sharing.
Cry at the drop of a hat. I just get so anxious and it seems that smoking is the only thing to relax me, but I went years without it so I know that’s not true. I remember severe craving and irritability for 2-3 months and not really feeling like I was getting there until after 6 months or more.
As long as you are addicted to the nicotine from the patch or gum the odds to you starting to smoke again are very good and that is what they want. I don’t remember us having have snapped at each other as much, though time heals everything.
I am on day 4 but it feels that i am in big trouble i can not concentrate every time feeling sleepy. 00 for three sessions but I had done the patch, the pills, the hypnosis, the natural remedies and the world is coming to an end mood swings.
I have just had to leave work and avoid any contact with another human and I am day 16. After around 60 to 120 days, all Nornicotine has been depleted by the liver, either directly out of the system, or turned into Nicotine.

November 2013 I realized cigarettes were causing me to miss out on things in my life. You are not going insane because you suddenly decide you want to divorce your spouse after you quit.

Quitting smoking sucks, but it’s like a training montage for self-control and self-efficacy. I started Chantix, the first week I cut down to only a few cigarettes a day . Just left and bought it.
If you have asthma, you may consider wearing a mask to help protect you from some of the common triggers, including pollen, mold, pet dander, pollution and, to some degree, strong odors.

The kids have never seen us argue so much and I usually try to be supportive and hold my tongue but it’s like I am walking on glass. This can make the urge to smoke even stronger. I had a hissy fit last night over hardly anything. Might be another week or so BUT IT WILL GET EASIER once the nicotine loses it’s hold on your brain.
They actually haven’t gotten any better. I have attempted to quit in the past but was not successful but before I just wasnt ready to and I think I am finally ready! I was 58 years old the day I quit. That “one” turned into a 2?
