I went to a no smoking clinic and was given patches and gum. I put a patch on Tues afternoon at 3 o'clock. Wed, Thurs and then onto Friday I was wearing my patch. I then thought I could look on the web and get some more info on stopping.
The message I got was to stop using nicotine in any form and never put a cig in your mouth. Whilst this seemed harsh after considering it I thought perhaps better to stop all at once and suffer, but for a shorter period of time. So yesterday I took off the patch and will now do without.
I will put up with the badness to get to my goal.....nicotine freedom or rather Freedom fron nicotine.
