Glad I found this community! There’s a lot of content here to read and I’m looking forward to digging into it and being on the support team.
I have not smoked for 5 full days now after smoking a pack a day for almost 40 years. I only quit once before many years ago and that lasted about one month.
This time is different. I was finally, and unequivocally, ready to stop. Stop buying, inhaling, obsessing, and thinking about cigarettes.
I’m using the patch and popping one or two lozenges a day. So far, so good.
The thing I’ve noticed since quitting, that is very surprising to me, is that I have an overwhelming sense of peace. The inner struggle is gone. And peace is happiness.
Peace be with you.
