I couldn't do it on my own (although i have cut back a lot) so i got my free nicotine patches online. Day 1 of the nicotine patch and i still had 4 cigarettes (but i was also drinking beers, which didn't help) Day 2 i had one cigarette (not too bad) so here we are on Day 3 and 0 cigarettes.......so far. I really want one, but i'm doing everything i can not to.
I have chewed up coffee stir straws, (not a fan of mints or candy), i have been using my stress ball to keep my hands busy. And drinking lots of liquids (which i heard helps, but not so sure now). Are there any other tips out there. I've been kind of "snappy" these last few days and i'm trying not to be a "witch" but it's becoming quite frustrating.
I have been keeping finger nail polish on my nails (so that i will stop biting them) but on Saturday i looked at them and didn't realize i had used my nails to scrape it all off within just minutes, (something to do with my hands, i guess), but i didn't even realize i was doing it. My friend uses a "spinner ring" and i have one at home, so i will try that next. Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks
