  • JMHO but I think its a bit to do with nicotine being a stimulant and that cigarettes are a more effective delivery method.

    I too had a bit of lethargy, and even now I need more sleep in order to function properly.

    11 days is great, keep it up and before you know it you'll be counting in months!! :D:D

  • Hi KitKat,

    I know what you mean. I quit using patches & lozenges so technically still getting nicotine. In my head, my way of thinking I had stopped, & have stopped smoking. I put some of my lethargy down to depression which was there when smoking anyway. I figure that if I feel bad now for whatever reason it is, I have stopped smoking & whatever it is I am going through will sort itself out or get sorted.

    So long as a fag does not enter my mouth that is all I care about. Will sort everything else out as it comes.

    Hope that helps hun.

    Love Gaynor xx

    I don't know if it is generally recommended, but personally I have been taking a multivitamin since quitting, and am not noticing any lethargy. No doubt better diet would be better, but who has time these days!?

  • Hi KitKat :D

    Well done you on day 12 now that's great keep it up

    I didn't use patches but as I understand it you get less nicotine from them than you do from fags so maybe that's why you feel lethargic just now but it will pass as well

    Love
