Smoke free,,,patch free,,,nicotine free!!!

Hi everyone,

Thought I post a wee note to let you all know how I'm getting on.

On day 12 now and feeling fine other than eating like a horse but I can worry about that later...lol...good excuse!!! ;) :D

On my 9th evening of giving up I sat down and went through the web links that Marg had given to me and I was that inspired that I pulled my patch off. I found that I was only delaying the effects and that weather its 9 days or 9 weeks, I still have to go through withdrawals when I stop using the patch.

So I said what the hell and pulled the patch off and said to myself I would rather go through nicotine withdrawal now when I am in the zone, rather that 9 weeks when maybe I feel that I depend on it.

It said that it would take 72hrs for the nicotine to leave my body from the patch so I can finally say that I am now on day 12:


Thanks everyone for keeping me going everyday!!!

Fantastic Eileen!

You will soon feel SO much healthier and SO much wealthier too!

Stick with it - remember any cravings you have are painless and they won't kill you - ciggies will.

Keep strong
