    I am being unrealistic about or just plain stuipid?
    You should really stick to the entire program, the reason you no longer care about smoking is because the patch is putting nicotine into your system for you.

    your doctor will ween you off slowly, changing the patches to less and less nicotine.

    keep up the good work.

    Re: 3rd Day of Not Smoking

    I read this article in the paper today and thought it was quite interesting.


    Cold turkey is the best way to quit smoking - mirror.co.uk

    Cold turkey is the best way to quit smoking

    Forget nicotine patches, the best way to give up smoking is by going cold turkey, experts insist.

    And scientists say health authorities make quitting sound harder than it is by bombarding people with an array of drug replacement therapies they don't need.

    A study found almost three out of four smokers gave up without any help, despite pressure from drugs companies and doctors who offer gums and patches.

    Lead researcher Dr Simon Chapman said health authorities and advertisers make quitting sound impossible without the aids, so many folk never bother trying. He added: "Two-thirds to three-quarters of former smokers stop unaided.

    "In contrast, the increasing medicalisation of smoking cessation implies that it needs to be pharmacologically mediated.

    "Health authorities should emphasis the positive message that the most successful method used by most ex-smokers is unaided cessation."


    The study in Sydney found nicotine addicts were being misled about the best way to quit. Dr Chapman said: "The massive decline in smoking before the advent of cessation treatment is often forgotten.

    "This decline started following coverage of a 1964 US report.

    "Researchers noted that 'per capita consumption likely would have exceeded its actual 1975 value by 20 to 30%' without this decline.

    "Other than the first small pack warnings that appeared from 1966 in the USA, this effect occurred without any elements of today's comprehensive approaches to tobacco control.

    "Often when the state intervenes to cope with some health-related problems, it is bound to act so as to further commodify health needs."

    75% of those who quit for good do so without any need to use patches or gums

    Re: 3rd Day of Not Smoking

    There has been a couple of really bad days where we have been in a social setting, having a couple of glasses of wine, and I did break down and have a couple of cigs X2 at these different times. But, went directly back to the patch next day(s), but it seems in a way it gets a littler easier, but then when I get a little stressed about work, etc., I really want one then too.

    I know that I am on the road to totally giving it up, and I am doing better than anyone or myself for that matter thought I would - so all I can really do is take it a day at a time. I will not beat myself up for those 2 different times of faltering.

    Thank you all for your support and good wishes, I really do appreciate it.

    well after 40-something years, it's going to be difficult. Just keep trying!
