Quitting Smoking Update
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago I said I was going to attempt Stoptober. On the first day I cut down 4 cigarettes with no NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy) which I thought was pretty good for day 1. However since then, I've not had much progress. I went to the stop smoking clinic at my doctors surgery and the nurse gave me Niquitin Mini Lozenges and I hated these.
This is all of course, just my personal opinion. They were easy to just put in your bag as they're quite a small package, but for me they just didn't actually work. They didn't get rid of the craving, they just made me feel sick. You know those really strong mints you have that make your mouth feel hot? It felt like that as well, which was quite unpleasant.
I'm going to keep trying to find ways to quit. I've tried distracting myself when I'm craving, but it doesn't really work if I'm honest. I have to quit though, because if I do, I can have a kitten!
