Hi everyone: I am on a journey to quit smoking. I have been smoke free for 45 days now. My quit date was April 28, 2019. I recently had a procedure to remove a nodule from my lung. This struggle is real for me. Not only do I need to accomplish this for myself and my health, I need to do it for my children and grandchildren (16 years and 9 months). Each day is a struggle for me, but I try to keep telling myself if I did it yesterday I can do it today. When I was going to work everyday I had something to focus on other than thinking about smoking. I am currently home recuperating from the removal of the nodule and feel like I am going stir crazy. My body movements are restricted for a couple of weeks so it not like I can walk outside, exercise, clean the house, I can't even pick anything up that is heavier than 5 lbs. I am just watching TV and reading but the thoughts of smoking still pop into my head. I am on the 6th week of the patch at 7mg. I am not using anything else to control the cravings. I would appreciate any suggestions to get me through these days until I return to work. Smoking again is not an option. I cannot give up after 45 days. I feel I have come so far. I want to be smoke free for life.
