Welcome to SHO Marg 17. Congratulations on your decision to quit. You mentioned you were serious this time. That feeling will contribute greatly to your success. I too used the patch to help ease the cravings in the first couple of months and don't think I could have come this far without them. I also used the nicorette inhaler for craving spikes. It satisfied the oral fixation and holding something that felt comforting. It seems you have many tools in place for you to succeed. Read and post often. We've been there and we're here for you. All the best!! Rosebud

I've tried and I've learned. All is in place. First time posting because I'm serious this time. I finished the last smoke; tomorrow will count as day 1. I'm anxious about withdrawal. Remember the first four days? Using patch 'cause support person asked, 'why suffer'? Why indeed! Glad to be here. To join you all! We can be smoke free forever!
