I've just moved down to 7mg patch. I was going to wait until I was craving free but I don't think that is ever going to happen. I'm still using nicotine gum and lozenges. I'm 8 weeks quit now. A little voice keeps telling me I'll never be free of the cravings until every last trace of nicotine has left my body. Don't want to mess up my quit but also don't want to be on NRT forever. I guess it's all trial and error.
