    I've been wondering the same thing.

    I think it's great that you are going to try again --- this time I sincerely hope you will make it. I promise you that you will feel a wonderful feeling of freedom the day you wake up not wanting a nicotine fix.

    Warm hugs,
    Donna
    Stay safe

      I keep having little slips- a hit or three off a clove dig that I make my husband dig up....if he didn't, I know I'd buy cigs. I don't know what to do. I go totally clean for a while, chew on straws and gum and then wham I can't take it anymore.... Too bad I can't chew the nicorette but that makes me puke so fast....I am having stomach difficulties which is a good motivation to quit totally forever (but not good enough I guess for a dolt like me ) I am having an endoscopy next month which it has taken me forever to agree to and I have to take prevacid twice a day as well as gaviscon regularly not to puke or be totally nauseaous all the time. I am h pylori negative so I'm pretty sure it's just a gastritis thing and I know smoking is awful for it- I can feel it. But then so is not calming down and I find it so hard to calm down without a drag much of the time....AAAAAAAAArgh Thanks for listening/reading ps I smoked on the patch too but the thing is I don't even smoke enough to equal the power of the lightest patch...of course I used to do that too.

        Years ago, before there was such a thing as nicotine gum, a friend quit smoking cold turkey. Her doctor told her that when the desire was overwhelming she should sit down, then hold her breath until she couldn't hold it any longer. She said it made her head feel funny --- just like nicotine did.

            shamefully, I'm puffing away.

            After being allergic to that patch (even though it did WoNdErS), they said I should try another brand or something. I guess I really should. But now I have this huge box of Nicorette gum that was $50 that didn't work, a box of patches that were $40 that I can't use without itching terribly for a month............ it's so infuriating to be addicted to Nicotine!
            The tobacco companies should have to STOP adding Nicotine, and actually give people a Choice whether they will buy the product instead of being forced to through an addition they create with their powerful drugs. That's one of my goals in life somehow to accomplish. =)
            Yes I have big dreams. (That and having seat belts put in all school buses... anyway...)

            My favorite saying is:
            Aim for the sun. You may not reach it, but you will fly higher than if you never aimed at all.

            Oh, and yes, I'll try again too.
            Should we set a group quit date or something?

            Love you guys!

              I also caved. I gained weight and also was told I need to have a hysterectomy. Because I have a urostomy this means the surgery will be difficult. To top it all off I have been getting migraines almost every day and need to see a neurologist. I didnt have migraines until about 2 years ago. My body is betraying me and I guess on some level I am punishing it back. I do plan to quit again after all this health stuff gets sorted out and I know when my surgery will be and what the heck is causing the headaches. If I did once I can do it again!
