Congrats on your clean time from opiates and on your decision to stop smoking. This one is tough but you can do it! Get yourself busy, take a walk, clean a closet, just do something to try and take your mind off this. My daughter quit a few years back and the struggle was real. She had an 800 number for the Quit Plan and she would call them when she was struggling. I think if you google that the number will come up. Think how good you will feel when this is over. This part is only temporary.
They have a helpline # listed.
thank you so much! that addiction to opiates caused me to have horrible side effects - such as panic disorder and severe health anxiety! it sucked but i don't even think of pills, not in the least. they actually scare me - even OTC medications, if you can believe that.
i keep reading and researching about quitting and i keep coming across posts about quitting smoking causes heart attacks because your body cannot handle, sometimes, being normal once again.
any light that can be shed on this?
The benefits of quitting far outweigh anything you are reading. These are the times where the internet can be a bad thing! Call that helpline number and talk to them also about your fears. We are here for you too~
The struggle is real......good for you for trying....I quit 6 weeks ago and started again a week ago.....ugghhhhhh.....this is like the 6th time in the last 4 years...... I will try again though....good luck to you s.wife.

I stopped smoking cigs almost 4 years ago and switched to vaping. It's really been a lifesaver for me. My breathing is SO much better. I've steadily lowered my nicotine down,I'm at 10 mg. Now, and plan on jumping when I get down to 3mg.
I too switched to vaping and now I don't smoke at all. Vaping helped me a lot. How are you doing today??
I quit five years ago with nicorette gum. Smoked a pack and a half a day for 25 years. The gum makes it much much easier. It gives you something to do when you're craving a cigarette. I chewed however much I felt like having and after several months just very slowly chewed less, cut pieces in half and mixed with regular gum etc until I wasn't chewing any.
