hi everyone hope all are well!
im on 15mg patches (the 16 hour ones) i have a coouple of questions on them if any one has the answers or advice, personnel experience etc... i would love to hear from you!
i was a heavier smoker up to last year when i tried my first quit (cold turkey)
but since then have been smoking lighter ciggs and less. if i was out my intake would be around 20, and when at home, which is lots more often then being out i would smoke around 15. i am so so so tired and my hubbie reckons im on too strong a patch and its causing the tiredness, has anyone else found this with the patches? i just dont have no energy its awful! im putting the patches on later now and taking them off earlier.
secondly last time i gave up cold turkey and my emotions were i a terrble mess to the point of suicidal on a couple of the days (sounds pathetic i know) this time round my emotions are pretty much ok (little moody and miserable at times, more to do with the tiredness then the craving) but i am very curious that because i still have nicotene going into my body will i still get the mad withdrawal problems once i finish them or do they prevent them being so bad all together? am i just sitting on a time bomb - waiting for the explosion? and are they easy to let go off or have i swapped one addiction for another?
just curious and a wee bit worried because im still putting nicotene into my body, just in a different way.
other then my brain filling up with a load of questions i am feeling fine, tired, chewing gum and sugar free sweets to stop craving for food (not smokes no more lol) and contemplating getting in the gym! (need the energy and motivation first though). dreamed about smoking for the first time last night. throat and cough improved now though, so not all bad. have a good day everyone!!!
