Hey Lenni/Jodie, Long time no speak. Different things will work for different people. However, it really is kind of silly to be using NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) to quit smoking. You're essentially feeding yourself the drug you are trying to quit. I finally had some success with the pill and have been smoke free for just over 5 months. What I did (and I don't recommend doing it if dollars are tight) is I rewarded myself after two months of being smoke free. I bought myself a Rolex, which served a number of purposes.. The main two being "this is your reward" and "if you remain a non smoker, this will pay for itself many times over". Every time I find myself getting the itch, I just have to look at my wrist and marvel in the beautiful timepiece I can now afford. All the best. It really does get easier.
