I seem to have hit a phase of cravings that are so intense they don’t pass in a few minutes, even with the lozenges or if I take a couple drags from my allotted cigs for the day (4). This maddening. I’m also sleeping too deep and still get head rushes when I turn over. I’m under a lot of stress right now so am wondering how much is physical and how much emotional. I know I’m dehydrated so that isn’t helping. I can’t walk them off because of hip pain. I was getting used to finding ways to get thru the cravings as I didn’t have time to make a quit plan or choose a date. This phase is throwing me for a loop. I’ve gotten all the advice about addiction, still using nicotine and such. I have chosen a tapered quit as cold turkey is out for me. I don’t even really like cigs much anymore which is something I never thought would happen. Thus s a long way to ask are there times the cravings don’t subside in a reasonable time?
