Nicotine replacement therapys

Blog Post created by Trisha76 on Oct 15, 2020

I am on day six without any nicotine replacement-(gum) and while the sugarless gum is working sometimes my mind just goes oh my God I don’t have any nicotine in my body!  It is almost equal to a panic attack. So then I do my deep breathing and settle down and tell myself that I have the power and only with my hands would anything be put in my mouth and it doesn’t take long for the feeling to go away.  Thank goodness.
I am amazed how this drug just keeps playing these mind games.  I have several more strips of the 4 mg gums and need to get them to my friend as she told me yesterday that she is chewing 8 to 9 pieces of gum a day and has been doing that for 10 years. And since my mind won’t let go of it I think I just need to get it out of the house and I plan on doing that tomorrow. Just wanting to post and to let my ex friends know that I love coming to this site as it helps me and sometimes all I want to do is just read and learn.
