Karan Kaul, Creative Strategist, GQ, thanks his friends for introducing him to Nicotex. He talks about the challenges he overcame and the changes he saw in his journey towards quitting.
Hi, I'm Sagar and I live in Mumbai. I started smoking 7 years back. However, since last one year, I started feeling that smoking is affecting my health adversely. I used to think, how can one quit smoking but after using Nicotex my perception has changed. Today, I tell everyone that Nicotex has helped me quit smoking. This is my story.
Never in my wildest dream had I imagined that I‘d be able to quit smoking. What started as a casual bonding routine had become a serious addiction after 3-4 years. After my health worsened I was told by doctors to quit smoking. No matter how many times I tried I ended up falling back to the habit. Thanks to Nicotex, today I am finally smoke-free for six months. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to quit smoking for good.
The stress of working in an advertising agency had made me start smoking. Before long, I was smoking two packs a day. Soon I realized that smoking was having adverse effects on my skin and looks. Then Nicotex came to my help. Not only did it support my willpower, it helped with the cravings as well. In a matter of a month, I was smoke-free. It has been two years since I had quit, all thanks to Nicotex.
My doctor told me that, as a smoker, I was 10 times more likely to end up with various diseases. I quit the following day but quickly relapsed. Nicotex helped me quit for good along with the constant support from my family. Yes, it’s possible!
After a few months after relapse, I felt disgusted with my behavior and tried Nicotex. With support from my wife during this first cessation attempt, I’ve successfully quit for nearly a year now. Life is unbelievably good without cigarettes and I can’t believe I’ve stopped smoking for so long, even after everything I’ve gone through. I want to encourage everyone to try hard and never stop trying.
Nicotex gave me the power I needed to push through. I’ve tried to quit before, many times. I would manage for couple of hours but then the cravings would start, followed by anxiety and irritability. But then I decided that enough was enough. I started using Nicotex on suggestions from friends and life was never the same after that.
It was difficult, especially because I was a heavy smoker, accustomed to smoking while driving and after meals. Everything became easier after three weeks. I noticed that my smoking triggers weren’t as overwhelming as they’ve used to be and was able to cope more easily. It’s been two years since I have stopped. My throat is better – it’s no longer swollen and I don’t cough in the morning.
I had been smoking for a long time. In 2010 my doctor told me to quit because of aggravating health issues. I managed to quit for 3 days using Nicotine gums but I disliked the taste in my mouth. But then I realized I was using it wrong. Once I got on track, life started to look good.
I was going through a stressful time at work and I used it as an excuse to start smoking again. Then one day I started suffering from shortness of breath and a severe cough. I was scared to death. I decided that that was it. With Nicotine Replacement Therapy I was able to quit in 12 weeks. It’s been a couple of months now and I feel a lot better. My family is proud of me and I’m proud of myself too!
