Nicotine Additction

Posted by @kitra in Lung Health, May 17, 2012

I had half of my left lung removed less than 2 months ago. Naturally had to quit smoking BUT I am having such a hard time giving up the nicotine addiction. I am using a nicatrol inhaler which now I am addicted to that. Anyone got any answers?

Hello,
I'm sorry for your health problems. Try acupuncture, chewing sugarless gum, yoga, meditation or other holistic methods.
I smoke and your discussion scares me.
Hugs,
Rox

Yes I know how you feel - I was a dedicated smoker for many years. I do not wish anyone to go through this very painful surgery that I recently went through. It has been 3 months now since I have had a cigarette - Still using the nicatrol inhaler but am cutting back - but it is very hard as I find the better I am feeling the more the urge to smoke again but I am one of those that cannot have just one cigarette or I will be a pack a day smoker again. Thanks for the friend request. Will be good to keep in touch with you here.

The nicatrol inhaler is by prescription from a doctor.

If it's prescribed you're doing better than a lot of us because the inhaler doesn't have all the extra chemicals and poisons.

Hi kitra, Sorry that youv'e been so unwell and are having such a hard time of things. I was a pack a day smoker myself, gave up when I became pregnant with my son. Husband still smokes with borderline diabetes. So wish he would stop. Will get him to read your post Take care Piglit
