I got a plan

Posted by MePlus3 Apr 13, 2017

I asked about using an inhaler and I greatly appreciate all of your input! In reading the comments I scanned through the related blogs and ran across one by Mothergoose9_Connie USE VICKS!!!! I also saw in the comments where someone used cough drops how could I forget about that! Those are things I used in my last quit! So no I won't be getting the inhaler! I'll USE VICKS!

Question

Posted by MePlus3 Apr 13, 2017

So I've ran across this "aromatherapy essential oil quit smoking inhaler" I'm thinking of getting it to use when I get off NRT the ingredients are black pepper, eucalyptus, and lemon. I'm not sure if that's safe to inhale though..opinions?

Whew

I came close but didn't go there! I texted my mom and she sent me this picture of a frog and said he lost all his teeth to smoking and that how I'm going to look if I don't pull it together lol I told her frogs don't have teeth she said that's because they smoked and messed up their gums so they couldn't develop any! She also bought us all (I have 2 younger sisters) some giant chocolate bars she said for every puff I take she's deducting a bar. That crave went away real quick! I love my chocolate! I popped in a gum did a little breathing and self talk and now I'm fine.  She also told me "see how that frog is looking he's going to be mad if you smoke" she always have been creative and I love that about her. She understand how badly I want to stay quit and have seen the hurt in my heart when I'd relapse so along with your guys she's carrying me through this journey!

Day 8

Posted by MePlus3 Apr 13, 2017

Good morning! On to day 8! My mornings have been pretty tough as far as thoughts, ok well my DAYS have been pretty tough lol but isn't it wonderful that we don't have to act on those thoughts? That old nasty nag I'll be glad when it go away. I've been working on reading easy way (I never finished the book) though he doesn't suggest using NRT I feel it helped me in my previous quit. I didn't follow the instructions exactly because I didn't smoke as much as the gum called for 9 pieces a day for the first 6 weeks at 2mg I was told by another support site that one gum is equal to 2 cigs. I wasn't smoking 18 cigs a day so I knew that wasn't necessary for me. Now during my relapse I found myself smoking more so I guess I'll have to follow the instructions this time. My throat hurts I'm not sure if it's allergies or the tingle from the gum and lozenges so today I'm going to have to delay my NRT usage. Everytime I get close to breaking down I ask myself why do I feel that way? I know I can talk myself out of it. What will it do for me? The torture of the nag will never go away if I feed it every time it comes. I know it'll pass I just KNOW it'll get easier if I just stick it out! Have a great Thursday!
