I have every reason to believe that your next quit will be successful. Why? Because you WANT to quit. Your past quit gave you the tools to do so again. I have many posts that may be of help. I am on Day 6 , cold turkey , past the stage of nicotine withdraw which is the hardest to get through, I have no cravings because i truly WANT to quit. The cigarette no longer beacons to me. A few things helped:
1) support and techniques learned here the 4 D's Learn them, Do them!
2) Lung detox...(not as scary as it may sound and easy to do) i find out the ginger and turmeric helps cravings (so much so that i quit without even intending to) and as well as its many health benefits, also suppresses hunger. ( find it on line, but ask a doctor if on meds) I am taking the ingredients in separate meals now Ginger and Turmeric are two spices in Curry powder, honey and water, fried onions... sounds scary eh? ( the mixture lasts for 10 days, 2 TB morning and 2 Tbs. again at night before bed)
3) CBQ cessation seminar (on line for free, and a second free webinar before they ask for money. I pretty much did their course, on my own before even knowing about it. A must do to gain knowledge and more tools to quit.
4) A member mentioned Dopamines and Eagerquit replyed with a program on Netflix which explained it well. Bill Nye's Saves the World. Season 3 episode 3 about Addiction. Thanks again for that tip Eagerquit.
You are a veteran Dahlia, I am sure you will have no problem, just as i have faith that these steps outlined will work for anybody. ( and if you missed some of the CBQ steps, i think understanding at last gives you the power.
