AgainI've quit smoking many times. It's just like the old joke. But I've quit again recently, a little over a week ago. The withdrawal is hitting me bad. I'm coughing up the black stuff and my nose is all stuffed up. I think it's ironic that you get the smoker's cough AFTER quitting.
Every time I've quit, I've used some kind of nicotine replacement to take the edge off and this time is no different. I used the lozenges for a few days. But I've also been using a hypnosis app on my iPhone. I listen to it every day.
Today I found a packet of cigarettes in my car. There were four of them. In the past, I would have smoked them as 'fair game' - I hadn't bought them and they were leftover from a 'smoking time' (oh the justifications of addiction) . And I left them out so I could have them. But I realised I'd have to overcome revulsion to do so. Seems like the hypnosis app is working. I listen to it every day. And I'll listen to it again tonight. And I'll listen to it at least every other day for the next month.
