I also eat and drink lots more fruits and veggies, it helps. I tried sugar free gum, but the kids keep getting into it and it disappears!
hide it!! Keep it in your pocket and tell them your out.

What kind of inhaler? I'm past that but still curious about what you are talking about.

A Nicitrol Inhaler. It has a little capsule containing nicotine in it. When you put it in the tube and push it together, it forms a small cigarette like thingy, and releases the nicotine inside. Then you puff on it like you do a cigarette.
It burns my throat so I don't use it much.

Meh, almost right on que! I have a cold that`s mainly sore throat and tight chest, and it`s only a couple of hours away from being exactly 1 week Quit, I can expect a few of these ( just like it was 18 years ago when I quit for 8 months).
HOWEVER!!!!
the Internet didn`t exist back then and there was little data at the local library about this phenomenon, and you may be absolutely Certain the anti-smoking literature (and most Doctors) will fail to tell you this or even acknowledge the fact that some DO get all sorts of chest infections and sore throats and diarrehoa and sickness and depression and whole range of other disorders as the body rids itself of the 3000+ chems you suck in per drag!
LOL, there`s a whole thread about it here: Quit smoking a year ago - sick ever since! >> Medical Questions, Weight Loss, Pregnancy, Drugs, Health Insurance
but pay Particular attention to poster that resumed smoking again as result only to find out that it DID`NT make it go away! and was stuck with the same problem as well as the original smoking habit :(
I`m a bit more determined Not to start again after reading some of those posts (not that I have any doubts anyway).
I must admit though, after reading about the lethargy and lack of energy and depression and some with panic attacks, I find it hard to imagine, as I feel almost the exact opposite since a few days ago, generally Happier and Plenty (maybe to excess) energy, and find I`m smiling on the inside more than I did before.
I`v been Physically FUBAR for the best part of a year now anyway, so that side of the quit isn`t going to make things any worse for me so I can give it the Bird ;)

"I have been quit for 6 Days, 19 hours, 11 minutes and 12 seconds (6 days). I have saved 9.70 by not smoking 135 cigarettes. I have saved 11 hours and 15 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 01/01/2009 00:00"
are my stats.

so.... I`v decided I`m going to buy a new Camera with the cash at the end of the year, I want a Pentax K20D.

what`s JP and Mav going to buy?
