I can't quite believe i've gone a month already, from counting the days on the first week, preparing myself for my 'danger day 4', to the almost none existant second week where i felt I just breezed through it. Week 3 came.. with a difficult start and lack of a good nights sleep.. and found these forums through a google search about sleep issues while using patches.. and joined right away.
Well week 3 got decidely better, with encouragement from this forum and my sleep getting back to normal and although week 3 still had a few flakey moments to deal with, i soon found myself cheering in week 4.
Certainly finding that mondays are my most awkward day in each week, i am not a monday person, and certainly not a morning person either, i guess thats just me
Anyway, i've seen some folk on these forums go from strength to strength, and some struggle, and some sadly fall but it does go to show you that we are all different, and we probably deal with this addiction in many different ways, but how we manage the pressures of life being the key difference. So many times have I been having a relatively good day only to find someone else on the forum that I really want to see succeed at this having a really rough time, and sometimes it don't feel fair that I can be having an easy time and then see someone whom I have wanted to see break out of the trap set for them by nicotine having just the most aweul day or such an intense craving they are at the edge of their wits trying to hold it together.
Today however is another day, and .. the sun is shining. It has to be a good day if we have sunshine.
So hello and good morning month 2 (and my 5th week starts here)
Now wheres the cookies?
