Get off the couch in favor of more adventurous ways to spend time with your significant other. These Active Day Date Ideas are full of little changes designed to help you enjoy a more a fulfilling lifestyle!
Paul and I traveled quite a bit over the summer and it feels like we should be settling down to enjoy a few quiet weekends at home. The reality is the exact opposite though! We might be back in Columbus, but the exploring bug is still in full force. This city has so many hidden gems; there are art festivals and concerts, farmers markets, sporting events, and natural wonders like waterfalls and hidden beaches to explore. Fall in Ohio is gorgeous and we are loving every second!
Active Day Date Ideas
We have been incorporating more Active Day Date Ideas into our lifestyle and it only takes a little planning ahead to make sure Paul’s nicotine cravings are under control for our next adventure. To be honest he’s been ready to be smoke free for quite a while, but as a previous smoker I understand what a big step it is to win this battle! My new favorite part of going out is knowing we can enjoy ourselves without Paul taking a smoke break. NicoDerm® CQ® Patch at CVS Pharmacy is an important part of our new dating routine!
This subject is especially important to our family because Paul’s mom is a lung cancer survivor. She is one of the strongest, most caring people you can know! I love that for every box of Nicorette® or NicoDerm® CQ® purchased at CVS Pharmacy this month, GSK Consumer Healthcare will donate $1 to the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE (up to $100,000).* This offer is valid from 10/29/17 – 12/2/17.
Just look at that crew!
Paul has tried quitting smoking cold turkey, but he’s more successful with the help of the NicoDerm® CQ® Patch. The Extended Release SmartControl® Technology starts to deliver nicotine fast and continues steadily throughout the day when worn for 24 hours. It really helps him cut ties with smoking along with support from me and our friends.
How to Use NicoDerm® CQ® Patch
Everyone’s situation is different so be sure to read and follow label directions! The below directions can also be found on the Nicorette® and NicoDerm® CQ® website:
- Step 1 (Weeks 1 to 6) – Use one 21-mg patch/day
- Step 2 (Weeks 7 to 8) – Use one 14-mg patch/day
- Step 3 (Weeks 9 to 10) – Use one 7-mg patch/day
If you smoke more than 10 cigarettes per day, start with Step 1 (21 mg) for 6 weeks, then Step 2 (14 mg) for 2 weeks, then Step 3 (7 mg) for 2 weeks and then stop. If you smoke 10 or fewer cigarettes per day, do not use Step 1 (21 mg). Start with Step 2 (14 mg) for 6 weeks, then Step 3 (7 mg) for 2 weeks, and then stop. To improve your chances of quitting, complete the full treatment program. Apply a new patch every day.
Active Day Date Ideas
We stocked up on supplies at CVS Pharmacy to keep in the room, in the truck, and anywhere else we might end up when we set out on an Active Day Date adventure! Whether we are going on last-minute camping trip for the weekend or taking a hot yoga class it’s nice to know he is prepared for every craving. Yes, you heard that right. I finally got my couch loving hubby to take a yoga class with me!
Also on our list of Active Day Date Ideas are fall activities like apple picking and a corn maze, plus my favorite – a local escape room adventure! How fun does that sound! Our favorite activity by far though is just to jump in the truck and go until we find something exciting to do. Sometimes no plans are the best plans folks.
