Put day 8 in the wrong section, the complications of being a newbie! Do feel a bit better, seen a nurse and got more patches free hurray. See other thread. 2nd week sounds better than day 8 but at stressful moments I have 3 children and believe me I am pushed to stressful times I am desperate to make myself feel better with a cig, hard to remember the benefits of not smoking sometimes, I did enjoy my little escapes with my little friends. However I have not given in yet, a nice old bloke whom I met puffing up the hill put me off, he is dying of emphesema, could have been me etc doom and gloom...Find myself obsessed with the giving up, almost as obssessively as my smoking. Anyone else?
