week 3 ive arrived at day 15

hi all,

started day in terrible mood, is that because the nicotine patch takes time to kick in, coz i put my patch on approx 7.45am ish every day & i start to feel okay- ish around 9.45am noticing a pattern emerging .... wondering when i dont use patch anymore will i feel terrible all day!!! eek

anyway dont think of that now i am on day 15 ( & i cant think that i am just not smoking for today anymore) my mind is kind of thinking that i would be soooo upset if i ever smoked again .. is that wrong way to think i dont know.. its weird coz id be more upset if i smoked again although i do get bad times sometimes, think might get some vitamins tomorrow when go shopping just to make me feel bit better...

driving lesson today, dont feel too enthusiastic about it.. but at least the cost of them isnt playing on my mind as much now i dont smoke... did uou hear that , i dont smoke anymore, i am a non smoker, its a waste of time, theres is no future in it, i always hated the taste, it was a habit that i was under the impression i enjoyed................need to keep positive today & stop screaming at everyone in my house including myself lol xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Hey you :)

    Yep positivity is the key. I'm still getting used to this new normality but it's getting there slowly but surely. When I came off the patch I used this method and it helped but there was a bit of up and down moods going on probably getting my due reward for having had an easy first two weeks. Once I got down to a quarter of a 21mg patch I got fed up and just stopped one friday and spent three days watching telly. Anyhoo you might not feel withdrawl depending on the strength of your patches and how slowly you cut them up :) there's something satisfying about cutting them up too. You're on day 15 which is a great achievement but maybe a bit too soon to come off the patches, stay on them as long as you need, you'll know when the right time comes.

  • thank you harleyquine

    Thanks for support harley i dont think i am at all ready to come off patches just yet, but if it is that is the sort of feeling when i wake, then at least i can feel prepared. I hate not knowing

    How will i know when times right though will i just start to feel stronger about the whole quit thing?
