  • Hi Kay

    You are doing amazingly well...in month 2 already.

    Dont panic about the weight putting on a few extra pounds right now is to be expected, it will be nothing that you cant take off later.

    I was worreid about coming of the tablets and been surprised how well I have done, I am sure you will be the same and we are all here for you.

    Have a good day....xx

  • Patches stepping down

    Hi Kay!!!

    Well done on the quit, i'm a bit behind you but also on Patches.

    I dont think there is a hard and fast rule to how long you should stay on Patches, if you look at Nicotinell and Niquitin sites (2 seperate patch makers) One of them i believe says to quit in 12 weeks and the other 10 weeks.

    I think that it is different in each individual person, and if your advisor thinks that your ready then go for it. theres no reason that you cant go up again if you feel its too soon after giving it a go.

    Good Luck, Although it wont be anywhere near as bad as you imagine... in fact, you'll hardly notice it. xx

  • Well done Kay you will be just fine when the patches are reduced - believe in yourself as you have done this past month and you will make it for sure.

  • Hi Kay

    Don't worry about the patches - you're a strong lady and will treat it as another positive step - that the medical people are confident enough in you to reduce the dosage - got to be a good thing.

    See you at the party - save a dance for me

  • Hi Kay

    Take advice from your quit nurse but be guided by your instincts.

    I only stayed on the patches for a short while and much to nurses horror, came off the strong ones to the medium strength fairly quickly, and from those to without after just a few days.

    She may be right but you have to go with what you feel you can manage with and who knows.... you've got this far with using them as aids, whose to say you can't manage just fine with less.

    Great to hear you sounding good and strong - don't forget your glad rags for the end of month OctoQuitt Ball :cool:

    All the best to you for December
