hey everybody, am abit stuck, dont know what to do and need advice asap.
i quit using patches and not really had many problems with them normally feel a little faint and anxious when a fresh one goes on but last nite my patch came off when i was having a bath and didnt want to put a new one on cos when i put a fresh one on at nite there mess up my sleep. So i left it and put a new one on this morning before i left the house. I didnt start work till 930 so popped to wilkinsons for some essentials before work - i found my self leaning against a stand/shelf (whatever) with my head in my arms. I have never felt so nauseous in my entire life my stomach was doing somersaults and was 100% certain i was going to throw up in front of everybody in shop. :eek:
Problem was that for next hour the nausea would hit me like a brick wall, come from nowhere and then go again after 2 mins. (i am definately not pregnant- that was the first thing my mum asked - but 100% not - trust me its impossible) Realised that i hadnt eaten all morning before putting patch on so had some food and eventually felt better.
Im a little nervous about putting my patch on tomorrow - irrational i know - cant really afford to lose a hour or two in the morning feeling rubbish instead of cracking on with my pile of work. Now im umming and errring whether or not to go cold turkey - am scared that if i change what im doing now i could jeopardise my progress.
Have recently cut my patches in half and have had some moderate nicotine withdrawal symptoms since then - so i know ill had bad withdrawal. But on the other hand i really want to get away from nicotine ASAP. am definately out of the habit of smoking a cigarette (been cutting down/not smoking all day at work for a few months now) just still addicted to nicotine at the moment. Any ideas????:confused::confused:
Im sorry for being so negative guys - dont mean to be, its just the novelty of the quit has worn off now and am still proud of myself but the reality is setting in that im gonna feel shocking for the next few weeks. But i can quit for good and im going to - no worries about that am still very very determined. i want to have a baby in the next few yrs so am getting healthy.
sorry for moaning x x x
