Hello Everyone

I'm new to this forum so I hope you'll all give me a welcome hug.

I've been stopped for almost 4 weeks - this is my 27th day - and I'm using NRT patches which make an awful mess of my arms. I'm so determined to succeed this time that I'm going to persevere with them, although on Monday I shall switch down to the next level.

My problem is that I'm now suffering with depression and I was wondering whether anyone has experienced this. It's quite severe and my GP has put me on Prozac.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Big Welcome Bea, day 28 for u today, well done.

Boudee and a few others use NRT and i think they are also moving down one step soon, i'm sure they'll be along real soon to give you lots of encouragement and advice.

Hi Chocobunny

Thanks for your reply!

Yes, day 28 today. But it was more the depression I wanted to know about - particularly whether anyone else was experiencing acute depression as a result of quitting. It's not even like I think I've lost a very good friend, which is not the way I think or feel. (See Allen Carr's book for an explanation on this).

Come on! Surely I'm not the only one???
