Last cigarette was yesterday at about 5 pm. These lozenges are not at all what I expected, they are not like cough drops. They take 30 minutes+ to dissolve, and I usually have to spit it out before it's even gone because they are not pleasant. But I'm still trucking along, as is Corey. The hardest thing for me is that when I smoked, I would go on the back porch with my book and have a 10 minute break. So it is not just the nicotine I am struggling with (hence the reason why the lozenge isn't making this easy), I also miss the "escape" into another world for a few minutes. I'm still on the wagon....


  1. I've been a little behind on my blogs, but good luck...I'm sure you can do it!

  2. Good luck, Ellie... you can do this!

  3. Thank you for posting this struggle. I am a smoker as well and this post hit home big time. I tend to go outside smoke and read to take my "break" from life. I want to quit so bad and i just cant seem to get it together. I will be reading an dhopefully joining you.
