Evening to you Alan.

I thought about comming off the patches today. I have done 3 weeks on 21mg and 2 and half weeks on 14mg. Wednesday we will be starting week 7 .

I still want a fag every now and again , whatever strenght patch i`m on, so am considering doing a few days on 7mg and then stopping.Maybe if i come off the patches i wont crave so much for old nic.

Good to hear your doing well and fought off having that fag.

Well done Alan.

hI Barb,

good to hear from you. why are some days easyer than others, really dont

know. your doing well. im on 2mg lozenge, i should be taking them every

hour for the first 3 month, had one two weeks ago, thought i could do

without them, but went back on them and craving are really not that bad,

we are going to have days like this were we want a smoke, but watch-out

for that smoking devil lurking about waiting for us to fall,

DONT LET HIM BEAT US BARB....:) take care. enjoy the weekend.

smoker still, and i know you will be;) all the best

Not really sure but I do feel better this time. Once the first 10 days was over I have wanted a fag but no really bad days. Had a few very bad ones last time and when droping the patch strenth. If you are going to stop the patches use seven for a week and take it off each night about 9 oclock dont know if this will help you but it made coming off them a bit easyer last time. Good luck Barb let me know how things go. Linda xxxx


Thanks Linda.

I will post a new thread and see what people say about it.

Well done to you.
