Decided on Sunday to come off patches - read lots of your stories and lots more on the websites suggested here. So many people stopping CT I felt I had to get off them or I would never actually be nicotine free so although I have stopped smoking the darned addiction was still there. Like some others I have found it a bit difficult. I would have been completely confused if I had not read about this and would probably have ended up smoking again - thank goodness for the site. How long is this feeling that I cannot describe properly - makes me feel a bit irratable - thinking about darned fags worse than it was at the beginninng when I first stopped - and restless, likely to last????? Thought I had done all this including the threes, bit like two steps forward and one back. I guess that means I am always moving forward a bit!!!!!!!!!!
