I am aiming to giving up smoking.?

I aim to give up smoking in about a week, I have set a date and am going to see the practise nurse about NRT. I am really dreading the mornings when a cigerette and a coffe are de riguer, any answers to combat the weed?

    How do I use NRT?

    * Follow the advice of a general practitioner, nurse or pharmacist.
    * Decide which type of NRT best suits you.
    * Set a start date. Stop smoking and start NRT right away.
    * You should use NRT regularly at first, not “every now and then.”
    * Use NRT for at least eight to 12 weeks to have the best chance of stopping smoking.
    * The dose of NRT is typically reduced during the later stages of treatment, then stopped altogether.
    * Some experts advise using combinations of NRT medicines for some people. For example, a person might use a patch for baseline comfort supplemented by the gum or the inhaler to suppress urges as they arise.

    NRT may not be suitable if you’re pregnant or have heart disease:

    *
    Pregnancy: while the use of replacement products during pregnancy is not risk-free, it’s much less dangerous to you and your baby than smoking. If you’re pregnant or planning to become pregnant and want to stop smoking, talk to your healthcare professional before deciding on a course of action. Most professionals will recommend trying other ways to change your behavior before suggesting a nicotine replacement product.
    *
    Heart disease: NRT has been shown to be safe in most people with heart disease. However, if you’ve recently had heart problems, such as an irregular or rapid heartbeat, or chest pain, consult your doctor before using nicotine replacement products.

    I am an ex-smoker. Iwas smoking 3 to 4 packs a day and I just quit. i made up my mind
    that those little round stilcks were not going to defeat me. I quit cold turkey. It can be done if
    you make up your mind that you really want to quit. i am not saying it is easy. I was miserabe
    for about 6 or 8 weeks. I feel a lot better and my sense of smell and taste and returned.
    The main thing to watch out for is weight gain. Your appetite will be bigger. Remember you
    can do it and as I get a kick out of telling smokers is to light up one when I do and that has been
    many years ago. Good luck and consider yourself as having just received a pat on the back.
