Sod the patches I am going CT!!

Guys I cant cope with the patches!! I started on step 2 (14mg) as I was not classed as a heavy smoker only smoking 10 a day and after 2 weeks started two days ago to cut them in half because my sleepless nights and mood swings were wearing me down. (I am only on day 16 by the way). But last night I had a HUGE row with OH :mad: (second big one in two weeks, not like us at all) and I dont know if its me, if its not, (although he was out of order with a few things but thats another story lol) maybe its that I am just not as tollerant now...i dont know.... so last night i ripped my patch off (let me tell you how close I was to buying the dreaded cancer stick!) :eek: I thought the battle was over, I was ready to give in but obviously decided against it. So I woke up this morning and I still dont need a cigarette or anything...I am waiting for like massive withdrawals to smack me in the face but its not happened yet which is good, so basically I was just hoping that all you successful CT's out there could tell me what comes next. I am strong enough to deal with it, well I have to, everytime i thikn about a cigarette it only takes me to think of yellow teeth to put me off, nevermind everything else smoking causes. I have come this far and want that Nicotine out of my body ASAP! Its evil! :(

    Hi Bladeflyer,

    Thank you for your reply. There are some really helpful people in here. I almost feel embarrassed for near enough begging for help and support, ok maybe not embarrassed but feel like I am a hindrence posting negative things. Daft really as I know that this is what the forum is here for. I dont know why I am feeling depressed. I have a lot to be happy about really. Maybe I should disappear from the forum and come back after my 3 days CT? x

    Aw thank you! We raised over £1,000. :) It started at 10:30pm at Manchester Central and by the time we had finished and got our goody bags etc, said goodbye and all drove home it was 5am!! Wow did I hurt the next day! Was well worth it though and will definately do it again! Such a worthy cause!

    In fact we should all do it together next year, us quitters on here ;)

  • HI TMB

    Nah stick around the next three days you will need lots of support and there are loads and loads of people here in the same boat, who will offer different advise and tips all good information to get you through it ......drink plenty of water and relax you are doing the right thing keep telling yourself that and before you know it you will be into weeks of your quit ...hang in there TMB bumpy ride but all worth it :)

  • Hey :)

    All the best to you for going without the patches and continuing with your quit.

    I began with patches but came off after 2 or three weeks as they disrupted my sleep to much and i didn't like the smell of them coming through my pores.

    Mood swings can happen (regardless of quit method) but they pass. It's do-able. Hang in there, stay strong and use this site in whatever way helps you and don't you dare be worried about posting things that may seem negative.

    This site is a tool to aid you, so use it :)

    Again, all the best to you :)
