Well here I am in week three thanks to the trusty patch. The patches have really helped me but now comes the hard part.. getting rid of the patches. I've used 21mg patches (taken them off in the evening) for the past two weeks and yesterday after reading Easyway through again I decided I'd try going without the patches entirely. Bad move.
I felt like killing my dog because he pulled me on the walk. I didn't kill him obviously.. but was feeling bloody awful. I've read so much on addiction and they're all saying that it's in the mind and physical addiction isn't so bad. So tell me then how I've been a confident, happy and energetic non-smoker the last two weeks but today I've been a total freak? Craves were pretty bad but I wasn't craving a cigarette.. I was craving nicotine. Anyhoo I have now cut my plaster in half and am going to decrease my nicotine intake by the method I found on this forum (i.e cutting them smaller and smaller) and I hope it works. Anyone got any tips? :S
