  • 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.

  • 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.
