I have been an on and off smoker for about 15 years, well to be honest I guess more on than off. I used to smoke a pack a day then cut back to a half a pack and slowly down to a quarter pack. Made the switch to cigars and then back to cigs. Lately I have been trying to find the best time to quit and with a few days off around my anniversary I made my move. I am using the nicotine patches and so far so good. It has been 4 days an per my wife I am no more crabby than usual(I think she is being nice). I am also chewing gum when I get cravings, these have thankfully been few and far between. Is there any advice to help me succeed this time? Anything you or someone else has used that just helped give them the additional kick to get over them? For the first time I am comitted to quiting, for me and the family, but mostly me. This is also my first day back to work and so far besides feeling tired and little off I am very happy.
