The patch

I want to do it with the patch. I looked at the prices last night in a store and I was shocked. Does this REALLY work. I hate to buy it and not work. What about other products, the smokeless cig or the smoke away program?

Lovely, I am a firm believer in the Patch! It doesn't work for everyone, because I think it makes some people feel badly, but it was a Godsend for me. Yes, it's pricey, but they do have generic brands that work just as well. Click here to enlarge

I've got a package coming from a good friend Click here to enlarge with some patches and gum in it, so I'll have to let ya know on the patches. DH bought me some nicotine gum the other night, and it really seems to help calm my nerves some even though it tastes like ass Click here to enlarge. I'm getting used to it I guess because that taste doesn't seem quite as horrid anymore. I'd rather not get used to it because I don't want to chew too much or get hooked on that.

There's a new program out called "Smoke away". They promise results in under a week Click here to enlarge

What worked for me though and I swear by this was using a cigarette that had been smoked some and put out. I would pretend to smoke it. It was so disgusting that everytime I would do it, I would get pissed b/c it was nasty and put it down. I used those for about 3 weeks. It helped so much!

My friend wrapped her last cig up from her last pack in tape. She taped the whole damn thing. She sits at her desk with the wrapped up cig...acts like she is smoking it. It's been month and she is doing great.

It's all straws for me. I suck on them, chew on them, and play with them. About the only thing I don't do with them is give myself a PAP. And the only reason I don't is probably because then I'd put it in my mouth. Click here to enlarge or Click here to enlarge

a guy at work (and no im not trying it) told me that if you take a glass of milk and put hot sauce in it the put the tabacco from a cigarette in it and drink that, that it does somethign to your system and you dont think about smoking. I clearly say thats cause you spend the next 7 days puking.
