So after a rough couple of days (and two half-cigarette slips), I was thinking that I was a miserable failure and beating myself up. Even with the lozenges, I wasn't able to resist the cravings or beat back the withdrawal. After talking to the pharmacist, I realized that the lozenges weren't working for me the way they were intended to, so we switched to the gum (and they even let me return the partially used lozenges! Go Shoppers!). It has made a WORLD of difference, even in just a few hours. This morning I was anxious, fidgety, and pretty damn miserable. Since this afternoon and 2 pieces of gum, I am feeling so much more like myself. It immediately stops the cravings, and my withdrawal symptoms are non-existent. I guess the moral of this is that if something isn't working for you, it doesn't mean you're a failure, it means you just need to try something else. But KEEP TRYING!
