To all of you wonderful people who replied to my day 3 cry for help - thank you so much for your words of wisdom and advice!!!
I took my patches off on Friday afternoon and have not had one since and I feel so much better, a lot more clear headed. Am still using my inhalator but don't tend to inhale much with it just chew it and I have started using regular chewing gum too which is starting to do the job!
I am on day 6 already. I spent the day with my in laws yesterday who are heavy smokers and all I could think to myself was "you stink"!
Think I might actually crack it this time!!! 3rd time lucky so they say.
