So here I am, about to turn 34 and I've fallen off the wagon.
No, not THAT wagon, the tobacco one. I've decided that my vacation this year will be my attempt to quit as I'm a work smoker. I've tried just
about everything with varying degrees of success. I'm not a heavy smoker, a pack of 25 will last me usually 3 days, unless there is alcohol involved
then I tend to relapse into chain smoking.
I'm looking for tips from you guys are girls who have quit, and stuck with it. Some of the obvious would be to avoid drinking as much as possible
and avoid situations where I'd normally smoke (work with my friendly coworker waving death sticks in my face every half hour..).
What has worked for you? I'd like to avoid the gum, never took to it and he patch just made me sick. When I quit for about a year and a half I was
using a little nicotine inhaler, which I dubbed the plastic tampon. It was nothing at all like smoking, not really replacing the habit at all, but
you certainly got your dose of nicotine.
Friends have suggested those e-cigarettes but here in Canada you can't get the ones with nicotine and inhaling flavored vapor might have been fun at
raves, but I seriously doubt it will help me.
the countdown is on, July 27th will be my last day as a smoker, hopefully
