Oh, those pesky cravings! They can sneak in out of nowhere, and can give you a good shake. But look at you, eagertoquit: you handled it so well, making sure both your physical & your psychological needs were taken care of...so awesome.
And treepeo is right: the NRT is there to work for you, when you need it. So continue to listen to yourself, and you will know when its time to use a lozenge.
Keep the quit, eagertoquit!
All the best,
P.S. for those new to our community, the "Four D's" that eagertoquit was referring to in the above post are: Delay, Distract, Deep breathing and Drink Water. Its an easy way to remember some strategies to deal with cravings. Some people will even make up their own list of distractions - write it down or type it into your phone for quick access!
