Hi Day 20

Hi found this forum from the no smoking day leaflet I have been lurking for a couple of days :o

I quit smoking with my husband on Easter Monday 20 days ago. We have been smoking for 40 odd years, we decided we should stop, so when all our supplies had gone we got rid of everything to do with cigs. As it was Easter Monday we had no patches on Tues I phoned the nurse at the Doc's and she got us a prescription for 5pm that night.

My hubby has been ok on the patches but I haven't first off I had bad dreams, my second day I was having palpitations and dizziness I phoned the help line and he said you shouldn't feel like this get some lower patches. I took the patch off and phoned the nurse she gave me some 14 mg patches I started on them the next day. I was sleeping better but I started getting a very anxious feelings in my stomach so 5 days ago I took the patch off and haven't put one on since. I feel ton's better not feeling anxious and sleeping well.

We are getting out every day and walking mainly along the tow path and feeding the ducks or in the park, we find it best to get out we don't think about cigs while we are out and now we don't think about cigs as much while we are indoors.

I have bought an external DVD re writer for my pc and we have booked a 4 day away coach Holiday in Scotland for May with what we have saved from not smoking.

Good luck to everyone. :D
