I am new to the site and have been reading some posts and blogs. I immediately got the feeling that maybe I don't belong because I am not using the cold turkey method for my first attempt. I have reasons, but now I wonder if they are just excuses. I am taking some prescriptions which include fairly high dose steroids which have me wound a little tightly. Ok, that's my wording. Those around me would probably say I am bouncing off the walls.
I have changed my diet, am using the patch and drinking tons of water, juice and green tea. Haven't had a diet coke in a couple of weeks and play, "distract and delay" games before I allow myself to slip.
I'm wondering if there isn't a pretty good chance I am fooling myself thinking I can quit "gently". Opinions?
