quitting again...........hopefuly this time for good

Hi,
I've been down this road too many times to count, cold turkey, patches, gum and lozenges, which led me back to smoking.  This is my first 24 hours without a smoke using the lozenge, and I don't have any cravings or symptoms, which is a very good thing, I don't think my will is strong enough to make it on my own.  It seems everytime I quit and come back my will power decreases, so I am hoping that this time I will stay smoke-free for a very long long time.

Thanks so much!  I am so glad I found this site and have finished reading and quizzing on the three milestones, it was a real awakening to read the health disadvantges that put me on the right path.  Also, I have never done a person to person or online support group, I am pretty confident in my quit....with all of your support.  I'm amazed when reading all your quit meters....I will be there someday.  Congratulations is well deserved

Oh!

Gimm, first off, I'm glad you didn't have that smoke. 
I am also using the lozenge but I have just started, so I can't really say if I will have trouble coming off.  Reading how you can become addicted to NRT's has me nervous.  I should be off the lozenges end of July first of August, and I will see how difficult it will be not having nicotine in my system.
The directions on using the lozenge, as I comprehended, is that you gradually wean yourself off, but keep a few on hand at the end of therapy.  If I were to say, take one a day past the two months following therapy I read you would need to talk to your physician, to find another and better way to remain smoke free.

Last Pack of Cigarettes

steelroots,  a friend of mine wanted to quit, she ended up cleaning out her ashtray into a jar and filling it with water, along with the cigarette butts.  When she wanted a cig she took the lid of the jar and took a wiff.
What I am trying to say is that neither your way or hers was silly.  It did what it had to do and it got the job done.
Whatever works

Hope instead of desperation

Welcome hope,
I found a wealth of information and inspiration here, and I've only just begun. 
 Sleep all you like if that keeps you smoke free.  I know when I get angry (withdrawal) I need to be alone and lie down.  It keeps me closer to sanity, and I won't say or do anything that will leave me with regret.
Keep it up you are doing great.
