4mg gum help no fair quitline!

Picked up some more gum after running out of my old lot (from a previous quit attempt) and realised after a couple of days this lot is 4mgs! really gross and upsets my tummy but as its been less than 3 weeks quitline wont help i have to wait till i can get some more 2mgs. Not fair cravings are bad and i cant take the gum and i took myself off patches a week ago so dont want to start them again. So im left waiting a week over easter break before i can get some help with more gum unless i want too pay extra for it :( not happy!

Day 2 for me

This is my 4th time giving up and last time too. Health and money are my motivation im 33 and its time to get serious about this. Ive done well in the past and alcohol is usually when i slip up darn it but not this time. Its so much easier being a non smoker not feeling guilty about buying cigs when money needs to go elsewhere. So im back and im here to stay smokefree for summer too yay!

34 days is fantstic. I remeber those days. You dont ever want to relaps and go back to the drawing board again with all those new cravings etc etc again. Its only gets easier from now on. Dont give up on it all now. You have done really really well.!!!!

And again

My second time round giving up, gave up for 6months but started again!

Day one today roll on please

Profile image Xenophon15 January, 2012

Welcome aboard Dreamz! I'm on my second time round too. Very disappointed in myself for putting in all that effort, only to have to start again at square one. If it helps, I'm finding the second time a bit easier than the first. You know how to be smokefree - you've done it before, you CAN do it again. Good luck with it!!! :)

Stick at it guys really the days fly by and it does get easier ♥♥ If i can do it seriously you can too i smoked loads. I used Patches and gum all the way now i use will power ♠ Keep strong ♥

Slip up!!

Im at 41days smokefree but i had a few on Saturday nite out drinking sad but true and like polhigg have been questioning quiting, i have strong cravings and thoughts of smoking again. I hate the smell tho! and no way can i afford to even smoke anymore!! I dont want to let anyone down either. So i have picked myself back up and kept on hopefully things will ease up now.
SO aint easy wish they had never made cigs horrible tobacco people!!
And i wish they would just stop selling them ban them for good!!

Profile image pukeko8 September, 2010

Dreamz....slipped got back up....move on...(yes bloody hard ) but you realised.....the person you are letting down...is you...You know you can do it...another part of the journey.......we are alll here....keep going Be proud of yourself of how many days so far!!!!! 41 DAYS!!!! slipped but back on...you can ..xx

Profile image horlicks8 September, 2010

Hi dreamz, don`t give in now,you have come too far to throw it away now. Be proud of yourself for coming so far, yeah its bloody hard sometimes but we can all do this. Just think that smoke doesn`t control you anymore!! At least you hate the smell of smoke, I love it still, which is a real temptation when I smell it. I think we will always have our bad days along with our good. But if you can make it through one day you can do it. Good luck and stay strong!!

Profile image jaQz9 September, 2010

XxOo...
P.S....

Profile image pukeko26 August, 2010

DO NOT SAY rolllll hahahaHa naaaah all good hey you are seeing that money by going to the gym.............
good on you!!

Profile image mandykoo27 August, 2010

Hey there Dreamz, I am hopelessly addicted to my gum now. But the way I look at it, everyone has vices and this one isn't doing me any harm at all. If it stops me from picking up a cigarette, then so be it. I'm sure that down the track one reaches a point where we've put other things in place in our lives and the need to chew the gum so much diminishes, but for now I'm not beating myself up about it. And I don't think you should either. Just think of all those carcinogens that you are no longer inhaling and coating your lungs in. We are doing so well!!!!
