Well I've made it to day 3, which so far is remarkably better than day 2 was! I spent yesterday in a highly agitated state, barely able to concentrate for longer than 2 minutes at a time. I went to the gym last night and it really helped.
I'm using patches and I wore one yesterday and put another one on this morning. By the time I got to work I felt so dreadful (lightheaded, hot, sick) that I took it off. They were the strongest patches and I think they are too strong for me as I cut right down before giving up. Going to try cold turkey, and keep a weaker patch in my bag for if times get hard.
Feeling generally positive today, with occasional anxiety moments when I think about the long haul. My new mantra is going to be 'one day at a time...one day at a time...!'
I am slightly worried though as I'm going out for dinner tonight which has all the triggers for me, social, wine, food...
