Good: I was quite stressed, so I reached for a nicotine lozenge. I realized it didn’t help and I didn’t need it.
Bad: Now I’m not sure what will help me reduce stress (except klonopin).
Good: Today is three weeks tobacco free, and I feel great. I’ve been more active and even lost a little bit of weight.
Bad: I’ve chewed so much gum in the past 21 days that my jaw is quite sore.
Good: I generally have fantastic, vivid, surreal dreams while using nicotine patches.
Bad: They’ve been quite surreal and unpleasant for the past few nights.
Good: My hope springs eternal, and I’m going to try for good dreams by sleeping during the day.
