If you are reading this log because you are going to quit smoking:
Throw away all your cigarettes before you start!!!
I found a pack with a cig in it in a drawer today, and I smoked it. I had no desire to smoke before I found it, but once I knew it was there, I just had to smoke it.
Keeping ’emergency’ smokes will cause cravings you wouldn’t otherwise have had.
On the plus side, now that my sense of taste and smell have returned, I found the thing to be pretty disgusting. Hopefully, I’ll remember that nastiness if I’m tempted again.
So, now the counter resets from 204 hours without a smoke to 0.
I don’t think it’s necessary to reset the week counter at this point. I am still in week 2 of 6 on the 21mg patch, and I will still step-down to 14mg at week 7 (Sept 13th), as per the directions.
