Hello all, I'm please to write I'm on day 21 today. I am 34 and have smoked since the age of 15, regulary since my early 20's. This is my second attept and this time I'm using the patch. The first time I used Chantix and quit for 45 days however due to drinking I started back on the smokes. This time the first week was the HARDEST and it has been a bit emotional for me giving up my companion for the past 20 yrs or so. I have not had a patch on today and so far I have not had any cravings whatsoever. It has been a calm day and nothing stressful has happened! Good luck to everyone out there. This is really hard!
